The Muses

The nine muses are Greek Goddesses of arts, sciences and inspiration. They are the daughters of Zeus and each one has her own specialty and personality. They are gentle goddesses who are easy to work with and are wonderful to work with when you have a creative block, even if your particular blocked field doesn't belong to one of them.


Erato
Erato - Muse of Love Poetry

Euterpe
Euterpe - Muse of Music

Calliope
Calliope - Muse of Epic Poetry

Clio
Clio - Muse of History

Melpomene
Melpomene - Muse of Tragedy

Thalia

Terpsichore

Urania
Urania - Muse of Astronomy



Each Muse is rendered on 4x4 watercolour paper with watercolour and ink.

  4. Thanks lovelies.

    Linda, I'm doing small paintings while we pack and hurry to get everything done to keep myself sane! Lol. I packed up all of my art stuff save my watercolours, paper and a few pens so I can get some relaxation in amongst all the chaos. :)
