Model: Blythe Renay

After I finish a piece, Dan and I often discuss what the title of the piece should be. “Is she hunting? Or protecting the castle?” Dan asked. I told him, the piece for me was more about freedom, not having to live the expected life and not becoming a damsel in distress (although Blythe will also be a Damsel of Dorkington). After batting around many archery themed puns, Dan said “true.” And I knew that was the answer. To make sure a arrow will fly straight, you true it. If you aim well, you have shoot “true.” And this young woman is being true to her real self.
