The Snow Queen goes to a Party....

She's very shy and a bit eccentric. No one knows for sure where she comes from although many rumors swirl around her....mainly that she's a distant relative of Nicholas and Alexandra.

She loves a party! She always arrives escorted by her trusted companion, Prince Pavlo, the penguin. She wears only white....white brocade, white fur, white leather boots. He wears his tuxedo. They make a lovely couple.

They circulate through the party, accepting food and drink when it's offered, but she never speaks a word to anyone!

She is indeed a Snow Queen....

  1. The detail of her coat is incredible!! Stunning!!

    Have been behind in visiting everyone this past, the work you've posted this week is gorgeous! Love the collage, and the journal-covered with wallpaper, etc. It's all beautiful.

    My art supplies have gathered dust lately and are pouting...I need to get myself together and get on the ball again....

  24. Such an intricate and beautiful coat....You can tell she comes from royalty....wish she'd speak to us though I'm sure she has many stories to tell.

  25. Dear Janet,

    I know I left a comment here yesterday, but where is it?? Anyway, I love, love, love this. I don't know what I love the most - her costume, the fairy-tale Russian castle or the expression on the penguin's face.

    I haven't seen any of the other visitors to this party but they certainly won't be able to outshine your mysterious lady.

    Hugs, Julie

    Her majesty's coat looked as though it was woven by enchanted spiders -- a fabulous expression of her fairy tale splendor. Lovely!
