The Little Milkmaids Painting
The Little Milkmaids painting is one of our most special works. A young milkmaid, going to the market with the intention of selling her merchandise, daydreaming of how she will earn so much money from the milk sold that she will buy chickens, which will lay eggs. She will then sell the eggs and buy a cow and so on.
Shortly, from the hypothetical deal, our ambitious milkmaid can already see herself as a rich woman. The dreams last, and as long as she gets bogged down in her business plans, stumbles and breaks the bottle. Along with the broken bottle all her plans and dreams go to hell.
This is the story of the little milkmaid we are all familiar with. From early childhood, we have always been disturbed by the ending of this fable. We never agreed that a person’s wings should be “clipped” and his freedom to dream should be limited. That’s why now, through our painting The Little Milkmaids, we have the chance to correct this injustice and tell the story, so as we see it.
there are two milkmaids and they are twins.
Two happy souls dream bigger than one. Together they feed their fantasies, turning them into a magical world. The donkey on the canvas, their faithful companion, is the embodiment of their stubbornness, persistence, and free spirit. Three absolutely necessary qualities of a true dreamer. Our dairy twins are smiling and happy. They are filled with joyful anticipation for everything that life has in store for them because they know it will be something good. Still, life has to offer incredible opportunities and favorable conditions for everyone. Why not be the lucky ones? There are two milkmaids, so it is only right to have two cows to maintain the balance.
A mysterious man is depicted on our canvas with a pitchfork in his hand. With this pitchfork, he has punched the bucket full of milk, in an attempt to harm the positive milkmaids and sabotage their plans. He is the personification of all the adversities and misfortunes that a person encounters in his life. But there is another image on our canvas. The one of the fairy. She is more powerful and influential than all the rest. Our protector always finds a way to save the two pure souls from evil and offer them alternative paths to success and prosperity. When the villain punctures the milk bucket, the fairy takes out a magic ladle and collects the leaking milk, once again saving the milkmaids and their bold dreams.
Our painting The Little Milkmaids is an appeal to the viewers to dream boldly and always hope for the best.
To give free rein to their innermost dreams, without fear of failure. To work with determination and diligence and to enjoy what they have achieved. As little children do. They have not yet been fooled by anyone that there are impossible things. As Terry Pratchett said in “Little Gods”, What have I always believed? That on the whole, and by and large, if a man lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out all right.
