Lady in Top Hat #1

Happy Sunday everyone,

I've been painting again and it has been making me feel so good! My other favorite past time is my love of books...reading, reading, reading! I love to read!  My sister, Kathy, gave me a Nook for Christmas and I have been a "reading fool". Also, what I love about my Nook is through Barnes and Noble, I can download ton's of FREE NOOK BOOKS....and, Who doesn't LOVE FREE!

Now, usually my favorite genre of books is thrillers....mysteries.....an occasional Nora Roberts romance thrown in for good measure. So, when I started downloading tons of free Nook books, I discovered an author by the name of Alex Albrink. Alex writes predominately Sci-Fi novels, but, the 1st one was Free, so, I thought what the Heck! The name of the 1st book of his I read is A Question of Will....which is the 1st book in his Alomenti Saga. I, have now finished all 6 of the books in this series, and I loved them! 

In the books, there is a character called Athos and he wears a top hat.....and, that got me thinking of my love of hats! Then, I remembered the Queen of Rock....Stevie Nicks, and how at one time she use to wear top hats when she performed......and, thus, my idea for this next of what I hope to be several paintings of women in top hats:

I have so many ideas of colors of hats....hair....moods.....and, I so hope to begin working on them soon, and I so hope you enjoy Lady in Top Hat #1.
