Yes I am planning on vending this at cons as an 11x14 print and an 11x14 canvas

This is an image I have been working on for quite a while now. The original painting goes by the same title and it was painted by Jean-Honoré Fragonard

The style is Rococo where there is very bright colors, cupids, Venus, love and playfulness.

However, the original painting had a more darker meaning than the one I gave this one.In the original, a husband is pushing his wife on the swing, and in the bushes a guy is looking at her. She is having an affair with the guy in the bush. The meaning to mine is a bit different, but the same in a way.

This is during when Twilight was a filly and still being babysat by Cadance. I image her going on a play date with Twilight, but she was really there to see Shining Armor which Twilight not knowing. Also, originally there was a cupid statue behind the man in the bush, however, I changed the cupid to Flurry Heart as a precursor that they will eventually get married and have a family together. 

I spent atleast 2 weeks on this with many many many breaks in between. 

--------
I also drew this because I cant finish ANYTHING (commissions, comic etc) because of the issue with my hard drive. I recently got a new computer and some of the files are missing, including my comic assets and commissions that Ive already started to work on. Its currently in the process of being resolved, but believe me when I say I am very frustrated with this long wait. I want my files, I want to continue my art projects....but I cant.

This is the reason why I haven't completed the Rarity image from my Epic Mane 6 series, continued My Little Sterelis, or finished up any commissions. Because all of my stuff is somewhere else....

Please be patient, It shall eventually get here. Thank you.
-----

Anyways I hope you liked the image! I might do more of these fine arts crossover images. Perhaps not all with ponies, but its fun! :)

I don't think you got the meaning of the original piece correct...
The Swing is a lot more naughtier, a lot less darker than that. The man behind the bushes is her secret lover, and the man holding her ropes down is not her husband, but her escort - back in the Rococo time period, women were not supposed to be seen without an escort. He is also possibly a priest or someone of religious standing, because of his clothing. He's holding the swing to symbolize that he can't hold her back. The man in the bushes is not looking at her, but under her skirts, and she's lifting her foot as if to invite him to peek more. Cheating back then was heavily frowned upon, and the artist for this was considered bourgeois, painting for the courts - if he did paint something that meant that he would possibly be thrown from court.
