Lady X, finished painting

This one has been waiting to be finished for a few weeks now! Glad it’s finally done. It’s loosely inspired by a vague Greek myth, of a woman who betrays her king for love of gold and jewels. He punishes her by turning her into a crow. I also enjoy the scandalous history behind Sargent’s “Madame X” painting, of which I recently visited at the Met and is one of my favorites. Read more about that piece here- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portrait_of_Madame_X

Next on the list, “Mr. Dark”…followed closely by “The Mask Maker. Image
