Marie Masquerade

Good afternoon!

Busy hitting the email this morning...... how fun! ;P

Going through orders and figuring out what needs to be sent out tomorrow, etc. etc.

After I do a decent amount more of work, I'll get some painting done! I want to do a cute piece for Valentine's Day - I'm trying to do more holiday/seasonal paintings this year, since I always get requests for those and they are very popular as prints, etc. I can't believe I'm actually going to remember this time, lol.

I think I might start on my long-awaited-but-regularly-mentioned Zodiac series (another one that would be great for prints!!!). I still haven't decided for those if I should make it more realistic (like the Moon Maiden style) or more stylized (with the wide-eyed little cutie style) or something completely different. Hmmmm..... any thoughts?

I've also been thinking about more seriously pursuing the Tarot Deck. I've had several false starts there, and none of the cards are ones I'm particularly happy with.... I'd really like to eventually get something like that published. I'm still not sure if I want to make it a "traditional" Tarot deck with all of the familiar cards and meanings, or if I'd want to do some sort of other oracle setup, and create a whole new system of card reading, maybe with 30 cards or so. Or maybe some cards based on runes, or an illustrated I Ching..... not sure! I'll let you all know as it progresses.

Okay - back to work! I'll post the link when I start painting!
