Completed on 11-30. The Baffled Queen as opposed to the Baffled King. I have loved that song ever since I heard it for the first time in the 90's performed by Rufus Wainwright. It had a calming affect on Sam and become our anthem of sorts over the years. Sad that Leonard Cohen has left us.
Anyway, I have painted many queens over the years but this one has the look and qualities I've been striving for. The photo doesn't capture all the detail so I've included a close up. This piece is 16x12 created on cradled basswood with painted sides. ALSO, I am about to finish the dove I started as well so stay tuned!
