'Lovers' Liberty' Original Painting








Lovers' Liberty
So I think my muse showed up-about friggin' time. She's a little delicate though I must say!Just easing in.
Anyway, this is a painting that I've been working on . I love the 1917 old music manuscript that I've added to the inner frame of the painting -it's SO old and beautifully printed. The inks that withstood time. Even the paper is so beautiful. The font designs are so elaborate & artistic.. She wears a gold leaf crown & has an abundance of lush fruits& roses all around her. She glows with happiness,contentment; she is successful and in control of love and life!

Wow Rainey this is beautiful. You are so talented! Thanks for the warm and funny comments on my Johnny post sweetie. I do agree he gets better with age and was cracking up at your remark about needing a cold drink. It looks like I did my job with my post LOL. Have a great night honey. Kori xoxo

You have to get a little glass jar and keep that muse in there so you can let her out when you need her!
