This painting was done for the gallery of Sleeping Wizards that's planned at Prophecy.  (I'm not entering the competition btw)

I've been working on this one a lot longer than I should have, and really hope it's come out looking like Jo!  I've been looking at it/her for too long now, and can't tell.  :~P  And I spent a ridiculous amount of time on the necklace!  *cough*a day*cough*  I tried medieval, I tried Tudor (ducks shocolate ).  spoonjosh , I know we talked about giving her LOTR style jewellery, but it just didn't work.  So I ended up just going with something simple, which I'm not entirely happy with, but it was the only thing that went with the rest of the painting.  :~\

Hope you all enjoy it, anyway.  ;~)

Ah, the Tudors were just a bastard branch of the Plantagenets - I can cope with the fashion!

I grew up watching Keith Michell playing Henry VIII and Glenda Jackson playing Elizabeth R, so I'm afraid I have quite a bit of love for the Tudors. This could well be misplaced. ;~P But I have to say I do rather adore Tudor fashion, (not Elizabethan though. Those neck-ruffles were ridiculous!) and I've had a 'thing' for Anne Boleyn for as long as I can remember! ;~P

Oh, you and me both! I practiced writing Elizabeth's signature, from the opening of the Elizabeth R show, and to this day my own signature still looks a bit like hers (my name is Elizabeth, btw).

I hadn't noticed before: where are you going here in the US?

I'm going to Prophecy! :~D I'll be posting (flocked) all my stops either side shortly. ;~)
