I thought I would get one more in for 2009. I was inspired to paint this after reading a little about the life of Mata Hari.

Tammy Mae Moon is tired of writing about herself in third person. I like to paint. I like to paint women and birds and snakes, and a few other things.

    This is gorgeous beyond words! Each new thing you post is just better and better! I’m impressed with the pearls…that’s something I’ve been working on and am still not pleased with. LOL Wonderful colors, and she looks so strong and commanding!

  • Oh, I think you do bubbles, jewels, and pearls really well…I still feel like I need lots of practice. I am really into these flapperish 1920’s women right now. I am so glad you like her Lynsye!
