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.
