My Muse has at last revealed herself, Hera. She is the Queen of Heaven, Queen of the Olympian dieties, and goddess of love and marriage. This seems the perfect subject to represent woman.
As you can see, I've added the gold leaf. This will serve well as Hera's crown. I plan to paint into the large arch with white, which will repeat from the lilies. I will use an Art Nouveau design. I think I will try to paint a gauze type cloth over the nude torso in some sort of Greek design. I will need to add a veil, lotus staff, pomegranate and cuckoo. Or at least some indications of such.
