New Painting, "Invoking the Glory of Spring"

I suppose I have Spring on the mind- we had the most amazing weekend last week and I have been yearning for warm weather ever since!  Anyway, my last painting was based on Spring and this one is too......I had a lot of fun painting her- since my computer isn't working properly, I turned to a book of vintage photos for inspiration and there I found my lady with the mask....... I decided that I wanted her to be surrounded with all the glory of spring; and so, here she is!  I didn't mean for her to suggest Marie Antoinette, but in my mind she does......ah well, I like her whoever she looks like!

I also seem to have developed a thing for hummingbirds- I keep feeling the need to include them in my art!
That's all for now- I'm back to the OWOH tours......
Hugs,
Stephanie

I love the masked lady and the hummingbirds.

Your masked lady is a joy to look at - and, I'm certainly looking forward to spring (from snowy and icy Michigan). She does evoke the memory of Marie Antoinette. And, the hummingbird is full of spring energy.

Dear Stephanie,
I read a comment from Laurie on the give away post that quote she hopes you make it to Paris this year. It is my Dream to go to Paris and I am in love with the Eiffel tower. I plead with everyone that goes to Paris to please send me a post card. I have received 4 priceless postcatds from sweet, dear, and cherished bloggers. I e mail with 2 people who live in Paris. I hope you truly get to go...all the history and artwork that is there.
This painting does remind me of MA in a spring garden...it is sunrays to the soul.
HAVE A SUGAR SWEET DAY
ANGEL HUGS
