The final-ish. Crit tomorrow with some possible changes ensuing after. I need to practice up on my painting shiny diamonds and stones and surfaces.

The piece is based on Jeanne de Valois who created quite a scandal for the french monarchy right before the revolution. She claimed she was a close confidant/ lover of Marie Antoinette's in order to obtain money and favors from the Cardinal. Not nice at all but really daring.

I was at a working cloister just outside of Brno in Moravia. I got a tour of the some of the church, but there are definite restrictions where the nuns are that are forbidden. There's all sorts of little buildings and the careless and adventurous kid in me wanted to explore. But, nuns are kinda scary, so no go.
Just a view of a church in Brno, Moravia. In case you were wondering, it rained nearly every day that I was in the Czech Republic until the very last few days before I had to leave.
