Now, that’s a funny looking Muse

The daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, Thalia was the muse of comedy and idyllic poetry. She was usually seen with a comic mask, and a trumpet. She also has a link to Ivy.

In an age where masks are everywhere, I decided to focus more on the mask in this digital splodging of colour, and completely obliterated the background. Rather than the painting becoming a comic image, it turned more into a tragedy – even a nightmare! Although it was fun to create. The digital oil paints blend really well, which is lucky for the amount of time I had to paint over things handy when creating an abstract masterpiece.

With the greatest of apologies to Thalia (and I will return to create another masterpiece at a later date – a proper one!) I shall end this post, which is also for Six Word Saturday (this links to Debbie’s site who hosts this challenge), with a really awful joke found on th’internet. What do you call a fish with no eyes? A fsh.

It’s always the eyes that get you.

  1. I was just ‘musing’ on why many masks freak me out. Not so much the half-face masks that we all wear now, but ones which obscure the whole of the face. Perhaps it is something to do with the eyes?
