Hello all,

I never knew such a forum existed! I am amazed and so excited at the same time! My husband doesn't understand my obsession with "dead caucasian people." I'm glad I am among those that understand my facination! I love Marie, she is one of my favorite historical figures; I am obsessed with female royal figures from Cleopatra to Marie Antoinette to Elizabeth I, etc. I stumbled accross this site researching photos of MA for a painting/illustration I would like to do. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Welcome CherryDarling!
I just joined this site recently as well and am happy to report that you will not find a better group of people with which to share your enthusiasm for bygone persons and places. The suggestions you asked for are regarding specifically what, if I may ask? Are you asking for a suggestion for the composition of a painting? If so, what about a picture of Marie as the Dauphine sitting on the rim of a fountain trailing the fingers of one hand in the water while a small bird alights on her other raised and upturned palm? She could be looking delightedly toward the bird on her hand and the background could be one of grand and idyllic pastoral splendor. Just an idea, if I haven't missed the point entirely! Anyway, welcome to the group once again and I hope you enjoy it.

Sincerely,
Ray

Oh My Goodness,
I must stop skimming and learn to slow down and read everything. Yes, Elle, I am Southern and would like to consider myself a gentleman. Comte de Provence, you are so kind to say such things about Georgia. :) You have a sister here? How wonderful. Sorry guys, I hope you didn't think I was rude or anything because I didn't respond to your kind and thoughtful comments. I have only just seen them. Thank you all for everything and may your day be extraordinary!

Sincerely,
Ray

Wow, Ray! That sounds lovely!! Thank you so much! I am working on a series of whimsical painted illustrations of "bygone persons" of fabulousness and your vision is quite beautiful...stunning! Thanks so much.

Regards,

CherryDarling

Bienvenue dear! I think you will enjoy your time here. Please do post your portrait of Marie Antoinette here when you have finished. Browse through the galleries on http://marie-antoinette.org and I am sure you will find inspiration. LadyReading also has a very good portrait gallery: http://www.ladyreading.net/marieantoinette/index-en.html

Well come Cherry Darling!!!! come indulge yourself here!! I don't think anybody's husband understands the fascination. You are among kindred spirits here from all over the world!!!

To Ray, a bird on the hand? you are a hopeless romantic!
I would like to see a beautiful realistic painting of the young Dauphine far out on the property of Versailles, clothes askew, laughing, running and playing with the servant's kids, while in the background like the voice of doom, comes Comtesse Noailles! Madame ettequitte, to make her come back to the palace and behave decorously. although that is probably not what you had in mind for a fabulousness series. In the thread MA and pop culture, under MA, on pg 2 I put in the picture of a very beautiful and expensive doll. She looks fabulous, I would love to see or have a painting of that depiction. As Delicate Fleur said, please do post any painting because we would all love to see. An artist, :angel4: I would like to see the whole fabulous series.

As we do with you, our original art selection is sadly very slim.

Hi guys. This topic like others in this section of the board is largely unmoderated. That being said, it is intended to be a place where we welcome new comers to the board. If you're not greeting someone or helping them with a forum related questions please find some place else for your discussion.

Imagine you had just found this board, all excited at the prospect of discussing Marie Antoinette with like minded people and the first posts you read are dare I say it crudely expressed views about the character of a popular musician. A little confusing no? Off topic posts have been deleted. I tried to move them to the new forum but they don't make sense being interjected over there. Remember you can open a topic about anything you like in the Tete-a-tete forum, unless it is intended to offend or persecute someone I don't care what you talk about over there.

This is what I find so frustrating about the board these days, so many off topic discussions... :?
