"Princess Diana" is an original oil painting created by Alayna Rose. This piece was created shortly after the death of Princess Diana in 1997. The painting effectively captures the distance and sadness surrounding the event. Alayna Rose did not set out to make a tribute painting, but it happened through stream of consciousness as the artist painted while reflecting on the times.  Now years after her passing, we remember Diana's life, her continued influence, and that day when her life tragically ended. The artist signed this piece on the lower left.
