Stephen Shortridge is a breathe of fresh air for Romantic Impressionism. It's all about the story and it is entirely up to the viewer to complete it.This piece always warms my heart and blush at the same time. The movement and bold brush strokes are so unexpected for such an intimate image. I'm admiring the painting along side of the couple. The powerful stance of the knight reaching for a well-earned kiss and the princess eagerly moving towards him. My eye moves from the horses mane to the elderly couple. I suddenly realize where the woman's hand is...

What is your story about this piece?
