The Count also has on a large collar and coordinating bat bow tie and matching bat button.
Out of all of the figures I have painted, his face is one of the most "painterly" faces with interlocking color that I have ever done. I really wish the photograph showed it more clearly, but alas I am more a painter than a photographer. (sigh)
I will show back shots of Wilhelmina and the Count coming up because there are scalloped edges to their capes that make them a little more special when you turn the pieces around!!
Well, Easter is only a few short days away and hubby and I are celebrating our 31st anniversary tomorrow night at Bella Italia (great Italian restaurant in Cozad, NE....yes, a former NYC chef moved to Cozad a few years ago and it is wonderful!! Did you know Robert Henri the painter grew up in Cozad and the town is named after his family? His father was a land speculator with the last name of Cozad, and Henri was actually named Robert Henry Cozad. It makes for a great read to learn why Henri changed his name in the book, "Son of a Gambling Man". That is your art history lesson for the day!)
There are a few more days left on my eBay auction. If you haven't given the Halloween Egg a look yet click on eBay for the link.
Have a wonderful weekend and Easter.
