Well.....FINALLY! I thought I would never see the daylight! LOL Why she took so long to come to life, I have no clue. I just could not seem to get her finished! HA! Maybe it's because she's one of those "ladies of the night" perhaps? She wanted to be born in the darkness of the night? Yeah....I think that's my excuse for taking so long to complete this one! ;o) Sounds like a good excuse to me!
I really think that the reason is because I wanted something really special to go in this amazing frame. I think I honestly wanted to hang onto it, because I might never find one quite as perfect as this again. So by not finishing her.......I was getting to enjoy looking at her just hanging around the house for months! =o)
But, she's finished now and I think that this has to be my favorite paintings of all time! I LOVE the way the frame looks framing her. It's shape reminds me of a mausoleum, like the old ones that you see in spooky old cemeteries. So with that observation came the idea for my first vampiress.
Her name is Vladimira, which is the feminine version of Vladimir, and I hope you will stop by and visit her eBay auction. Oh.....and don't forget to wear your garlic necklace.........*giggle*
