Marie Masquerade

Good morning!!!!!!!

What a glorious day!!!! I went down to the leasing office today (somehow we ended up with two water bills this month, hehe, and I had to straighten that out) and it was just so beautiful outside! The windows are open, it's nice and breezy, and sunny - so pretty!

When I did Tae Bo this morning I tried to do it with strap-on hand weights - lol, I got about halfway through before I had to take them off. I'll slowly work my way up!!!

I see my emailbox has mysteriously gotten full again, hehe - I'm going to paint first though - I really am anxious to finish my Aries painting! I have her with little rams-horns, and the constellation of Aries can be seen in the background! I'm going to give her some red stripey tights too, since Red is the colour usually associated with Aries.

After I finish "Aries" I will be working on a couple of commissioned pieces, and maybe a new "Ophelia" painting (I read an article in Renaissance Magazine talking about all different artists throughout time have painted her). I did one a few years ago, but I want to do more, lol. I like tragic heroines.

Okay - off to paint! You can watch me HERE!!!!

"Aries"

She's done!!!!!

Meet...........

"Aries"

The first in my Zodiac series! She is sitting in a moonlit garden surrounded by geraniums (the flower associated with Aries), wearing bright scarlet striped clothing (the colour associated with Aries), and she has a tattoo of the Aries symbol on her arm! And if you look up in the sky you will see the constellation of Aries prominently displayed brightly in the stars! In addition you can see the planet Mars (the planet associated with Aries) in the sky!

Now, I've started on a commissioned piece for wobblesnorts, and I'm also going to try to get my submission ready for the EBSQ Aesop's Fables show!

But first, I'm eating dinner ;)
