The Queen of Sheba

In the Netherlands there is a song. It's a biblical song about the queen of Sheba who went to king Solomon (I believe, but my bible knowledge is a little rusty) to see if he was really very wise. Anyway, the first line of the song goes like this:

De koningin van Sheba ging heel koninklijk op reis.

Which translates into something like:

The queen of Sheba went queenly on her way.

When I was a child and heard this song, an image popped into my head. Something like the image I painted here. Lol. Hope you like it!

I did the image with acrylics.

I really love this one. If I ever have a kid, I'm commissioning you to paint that for my kid's room!
