Gertrude of Nivelles

Patron saint of cats and gardeners, and one of my favorite subjects...

She sold before she was even completed, and is now on her way to Australia. I do hope to paint St. Gertrude again soon though, along with Hildegarde of Bingen - two women I find absolutely fascinating, and can think of no better way to honor them than with a humble little painting. ♥

In the meantime, tomorrow is the vernal equinox, which calls for a piece or two featuring rabbits and hares! (Perhaps a couple of mad March hares?)

I will post photos soon, and if you're on facebook, please do find me under "King of Mice Studios". I'm having great fun showing pictures of works-in-progress there, and love to hear comments on the latest efforts. :)

Until next time,
♥ Carolee
PS - Halloween lovers, don't despair - "Malice in Wonderland" is coming soon!
