Inspired by Shakespeare’s Taming the Shrew.

Kate is another of my favourite heroines. I love her spirit and passion.

Here’s a quote to get you in the mood:

You are called plain Kate,
And bonny Kate and sometimes Kate the curst;
But Kate, the prettiest Kate in Christendom
Kate of Kate Hall, my super-dainty Kate,
For dainties are all Kates, and therefore, Kate,
Take this of me, Kate of my consolation.

(The Taming of the Shrew, 2. 1)

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    I so want to say that I can’t …I don’t want to encourage cathartic art much….but this illustrates what “exquisite” means as a word…. here is an image that inpsires such compassion…the colours you have used are emotionally perfect for this,,,,outstanding and beautiful! Salute!

  • Thank you so much Simon. It was difficult to get right. Kate was always one of my favourite heroines. I am so glad you accepted the image and FEATURED it!!! :-)

  • Thank you so much Shar. Yep, untameable is definitely a word (or if it isn’t it should be! LOL). I am so pleased with how it turned out especially as I almost gave up on it. Took me forever to find the right model. xoxoxo
