Artwork Description

This is me in the only role I could think of. Hemet Netjer Vera Lucia, Goddess Bast's high Priestess. I have my hair very short and I read once that Egyptian priestesses shaved their head. So I put the veil on her head. The earrings are mine but I would love to own the necklace and the head ornament.

Cyn, the Siamese is on my lap. You just cannot see her.

Vera...what happened to the Pink Dragon concept? Just kidding...I like this much better. It's how I pictured you! I'm just surprised there's not a Siamese draped around your shoulders. Wink

I know what you mean, Chris. Thank you.

I love hieroglyphic art, it's so stylish, and it radiates a timelessness about it.
Or Egyptianesque art, you know what I mean. Wink

Thank you! But I am not completely satisfied with the portrit. I think I seem a litttle younger than I really am.I have to paint it several times because I didn't like the first outfits. I paint an egyptian wig and make-up.It was awful so I started again with the veil and a light make-up . And I had my husband critisizing it all the time. It seems he wanted me to show pretty and I wanted to show the thruth. So I still think in adding a few lines and shadows to this portrait.

I was waiting for yours, Vera! I really like it...an Egyption priestess. You have a very regal look and wear that necklace with grace and style.

Just beautiful, Vera! I'd love to have that necklace, too! Smile

Art at its best.
