A digital photograph of a mixed media color painting created by Mabel Vandiver, former Art Department chair at Fort Hays State University. A young blonde girl sleeps in a bed that rests on a dark pink bed frame. She lies under an off-white comforter with pink, blue, and orange designs on it. Blue slippers and an open book sit on the floor next to the bed. The curtains on the left side of the painting, behind the bed, are blue with darker green indistinct shapes on them. The diamond-patterned glass window is open, and the moon smiles down while the stars shine brightly. Three dark pink roses rest on the window ledge. Three blonde fairies, all wearing long blue dresses, are at the foot of the young girl's bed. One of the fairies stands toward the middle of the bed with her arms outstretched, another sits at the foot of the bed, and the third sits on the floor.
