Soror Marium print Double Matted and Unmatted
Signed and numbered limited edition 200
Acrylic on gessoed watercolor board
Soror Marium is Latin for Sister of the Sea. Over the years, I have acquired an eclectic library, including many books on historical costumes. Here, I used them to imagine a young lady of means made up for a fancy dress ball with a nautical theme. It quickly became popular. My friend, Barbara Higgins, recreated this outfit for a cosplay competition. It was glorious, and I was tremendously flattered.
