Meet Thalia

Muse: a woman, or a force personified as a woman, who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist.
Note: the "s" in muse is pronounced like a "z".

From Greek and Roman mythology it seems that the 9 daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne presided over the the arts and sciences. The daughter named Thalia presided over comedy and light verse. I love that!

Today I found Thalia at the Christmas shop. I couldn't resist her. Her hair looks a lot like mine when I forget to color it. (I mean she really didn't have that name...but she does now.) My husband loves the garters.

She's sitting on top of my computer but she'll be in the studio soon where she can be a source of creative inspiration!

Rhonda is encouraging folks to try the 20 minute challenge. Wouldn't it be fun to try to draw or paint Thalia? I'm on!!!


  1. She certainly is limber! haha I'd love to see you draw her - 20 minutes and she'll be perfect!

  2. Cute doll! It is fun to have small things around that you just enjoy looking at. Good luck on your art show, too. YOu have really been busy - art show and banner!
