Lady Anna Marie


Lady Anna Marie: 8x10 Painted on Canvas


On our recent trip to London and Denmark, we got to
visit a few castles. I painted this lady thinking of castles...

Dark corridors, stairwells and candeabras....





First, in London, we went to The Tower.


Loved seeing the Crowned Jewels, the royal armour, and the prisoner graffiti.....

In Copenhagen, we went to Frederiksborg Castle home of Christian IV. The Castle and the Church were just incredible! This is one of the stained glass windows in the church. Isn't it beautiful?!

The lady looks like she won't take a bit of guff from anyone -- she's fierce and gorgeous at the same time!

Caryl,

Very gothic looking lady! And the photos of the "Bloody Tower" and the fantastic stained glass are wonderful.
