A New Series of Photographs-FORTUNY!

I have taken a few self-portrait photographs wearing an amazing find of vintage dress from Etsy.  To me, it looks like a gown that the amazing multi-media Venitian Artist, Mariano Fortuny, would have made(or something close to it, I can dream!).  I wish I could have taken photographs in Venice, but I am stuck her in the U.S.A.  There are gorgeous canals near where I live and you can take little rides down them.  I usually decide to take my photographs in the middle of the night(when I finally can't take the nagging from my art to 'do it now!' anymore).  "Cross of Saint Cecelia" necklace by Parrish Relics

"Fortuny on the Stage"

I like the bottom one the best -- it's very quiet.
