Illustration Friday - Poise - Queen of Clubs



Here's my third queen for an imaginary card deck - i was kind of stuck on what to do with clubs...and then my mind wandered and i pictured how clubs look like clover and then i was picturing rolling Irish hills with a redheaded queen with green eyes and all of a sudden i had some sort of gaelic queen...and i'm not even sure if there ever was a gaelic queen of any kind but hey, it's make believe...

Anyway, for Illustration Friday this week the word is Poise and i think she definitely looks poised for something...

She's a beauty! (I have to tell you I did a doubletake...at first I read garlic queen - I just got back from a Tastefully Simple party. But hey, a garlic queen could be cool too.)

Lovely! And the Queen of Clubs is definitely closer to nature than the queen of spades--clover and green seem just right.

She's so fitting for a queen and for poise. Wonderful linework and composition.

You know I love your work! It is so beautiful and if I could do what you do with line work...well, let's just safely say, I can't! lol! Fabulous, m'dear, just fabulous!

She is very beautiful. But the way the hair cuts off at such a dramatic angle, it looks like her head is floating away from her body.
