Her decollete on fire with flaming red roses , fearlessly gazing forward , ablaze with her innocence and intoxicating like springtime , she is the Queen of the color Red . I have been painting a series of Astrological Portraits , and have worked on this one – a Princess or young Queen in Red throughout the month of Aries , starting on the Equinox , She has come into her form and self through my brush , and layers of paint , like a teasing revelation .A corseted Warrior Angel , wearing a crown , and ruffled details , with a red heart exposed between her breasts , she stands feraless , and beautiful . Not yet complete , but her energy is strong as she watches me walk and cross the room . She has power , painted with the planets in the Aries stellium . She blazes fire through her eyes , and radiates with her strength and beauty .
She is painted on two birch wood panels , each 12 by 16 inches , and stands 32″‘ tall . Painted with oils , she is still drying , and awaits more details , glazes , final touches , and a varnish .
She is almost complete , but still a lot of work before she is ready .
Now , I am impatient . it is time to paint her sister , the Goddess of Spring , Taurus , a lush beauty bedecked with blossoms and flowers …I look forward to my next beauty , and Astrological Portrait – the Queen of May .
