Thalia

Description

Thalia, Muse of Comedy. I chose a slightly simpler, more stylized background for the two theatrical muses (this one and Melpomene, Muse of Tragedy), to represent a stage backdrop. This one is painted with the grape vines of Dionysus, the god of theatre and ritual madness (how I love that concept!)

Again, I will have these with their full borders once I have them mounted and can figure out how to take a photo that isn't skewed, shadowed or out of focus!

Many thanks to :iconfaestock: for the wonderfully expressive pose referenced.
