Image Notes

“Prove yourself brave, truthful, and unselfish and someday you will be a real boy.” That is the promise of the Blue Fairy to the puppet Pinocchio. This is a story of our human condition and striving to become but even more so about redemption. The message is that there is always a way back for someone with a good conscience and a strong heart if they hold on to unconditional love.

I first saw it when I was seven years old. There was something special to me about the movie even after only one viewing. I identified with the puppet turned little boy but was too young to know why. I just knew I loved him. My parents bought me a Pinocchio bank doll and it was my prize possession through my childhood. I kept it through high school. Starting this project, 44 years later, I sat down and watched it again. It had an unbelievable impact on me. I cried openly. I knew right away what I wanted to capture in my painting.

We all start out innocent. We want to please, do some good, be recognized, and be happy. We set off on our journey trying to figure it all out. Then we make mistakes and get roughed up by life’s harsh realities. This seems to slowly chip away at our youthful optimism. We feel unloved, without worth, and irredeemable. Then we find that source of unconditional love which pulls us back from the edge, for which we would sacrifice all. That love is the ultimate reality. Often times, we need a great awakening to bring us back to the way we saw the world when we were young.

That is the moment of pure joy I wanted to capture in this painting. Pinocchio has returned home to his father. They dance in celebration that he has become a real boy – their dream come true. Jiminy Cricket has also reached his goal of becoming an Official 18 Ct. Gold Conscience, bestowed by the Blue Fairy’s starlight. Figaro, Cleo, and the clocks are even caught up in the joyful event. This is considered by many to be Walt Disney’s best animated classic. Its magical mantra echoes, “When you wish upon a star your dreams come true.”
