I'm going to do another painting of Morgan Le Fay. Not today though - I want to put some thought into it for awhile first. I did a painting of her awhile back, but I'm much better at painting now so I'd like to give her a second shot =)

Just a thought...

Have you ever considered doing any paintings based on Mexican legends? There's some stories I remember being told back when I was in grade school that would make great paintings. The one that stands out the most is the story of Popocatepetl and Iztlacihuatl.

You can read the story here:

I considered doing this piece myself many times but it sounds too ambitious for me to tackle at this point. Thought you might want to give it a try someday. :)

Don't underestimate yourself Jinx. I think you could do anything you wanted to if you put your mind too it. I know that sounds very parent-like of me, but its true! You are super talented! Don't sell yourself short =)

Re: Just a thought...

What a neat story! That would definitely be a good inspiration for a painting!

I've actually been thinking about doing some Aztec and Mayan inspired pieces - they have so many ancient stories, and not very many are well known. It would make me happy to think that I was introducing people to new ideas and ancient cultures!

I think the scan was on my old computer (Matt's computer now) - if I run across her I'll send you a pic! She was cute, but not very detailed or as grand as she should have been depicted.
