"Daughter of a King"

This young girl's face shows that she knows who she is.  
She is the daughter of a King, and she has the crown to prove it!
She is looking up with confidence because she is a child of God.
When I was trying to figure out what to put in the background of this painting, 
the idea of a gate came to my mind.  I thought it was perfect, because of all it can symbolize.
Since I live in Fillmore, UT, I figured I needed to do a painting of the historical 
Territorial Statehouse.  I decided it would be neater if I painted it as it would have been 
just after it was completed.  I added in Brigham Young and a horse carriage as well.
