A Fan of Marie Antoinette...

Recently I met a new blogger... Paris Atelier... and yesterday when I went to visited her site she had a lovely post about the "Language of the Fan"... I found it very ironic that I was working on a painting. I hadn't planned on posting my painting until the series was done, but I thought it would be wonderful to link my painting with her post... so I told her, and Judith of Paris Atelier agreed... so here is the Queen with her fan...


You might remember this pose from Sofie Coppola's Marie Antoinette. I hope you enjoy this painting... there are more to come... I could paint volumes from that movie... and for some reason... I want CANDY...

Did you notice all the beautiful fans at the start of the video? ENJOY YOUR DAY!

Lovely painting - there is something a little sexy about fans. I have always loved fans since I was a little girl....used to make them out of folder paper, always trying to be so careful to get the folds as perfect as possible :)

Savvy Mode SG said...

love the movie and love your work. we don't use fans in the art of flirting nowadays uh....

That fan is just beautiful! I really liked that movie. I know the history wasn't perfectly accurate, but the imagery (and food!) was beautiful!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Sumptuous fabrics, divine delicate shoes, sparkling jewels, adorable puppies, flowing champagne, heavenly pastries on the prettiest of china - I could squeal with delight!

Your painting is GORGEOUS!

What you said about the fan reminds me of "The Secret." Have you read it? It totally relates to what you said!

Gorgeous painting as usual!

That shot of eating cake is a CRACK UP. And it's even funnier as it's made me hungry--stress = need for sugar! :)
