This is Margaret Cranmer, in a commissioned portrait that's a companion piece for the large Cranmer painting I did here. She's in her velvet wedding gown, which is German in style as she was from Nuremberg, and that was where the Cranmers married. For the gown, I was inspired by Lucas Cranach's portrait of Sybille of Cleves, the sister of Anne of Cleves. There's something quite attractive and soft about German styles of the period, as opposed to the more rigid and angular English Tudor style.

This is also the first time I ever painted velvet, which was tricky, but an interesting challenge.

I'm still alive. Barely, but anyway, still alive.
I had to finish this creature for an exhibition, and here I am, somehow, I made it.... with much help from my mom for the dress, since I couldn't make it in time too.

She's 5' 7'' tall (more than me!),
made of several different materials (and very heavy!), painted with acrylics and "real" make-up.
The hands are made from a copy of mine, that were heavily worked on.

This is a detail of the face: [link]

She's Eve... gracious Eve.
The day before the exhibition I worked literally all day and night, sleeping 1.5 hours at night (divided in two "rich" naps).
I was in my room working, and had the comp turned on, and msn was on too, and as a personal quote, at a certain moment I put "Gracious Eve", referring to the fact I was working as hell to finish the sculpture, that it was the day before the show, and that weirdly I was in a strage state of grace, when the anxious thoughts are somehow gone, and I keep going, appearently without getting any more tired, and also, relaxed by the awareness that it will go how it has to go, anyway, and what had to be done, is basically done.

Before that day, she had just been the Elvenqueen. Now, she's gracious Eve, a new child of mine. :aww:

(the pic was taken at the fair, which, I'm told, is the second fair of arts&cratfs in Europe for importance and dimensions; this year 2700 exhibitors, last year 3 millions visitors)
