Paramour by Kitty-Grimm Paramour by Kitty-Grimm
While I was re-reading The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (again), I was taken by the figure of Paramour: a living statue of a woman dressed in love letters.

Paramour strikes me as a very sad figure in the book. I can't say why, but when Poppet mentions that she doesn't look complete without a red rose, it strikes me that she is a rather lonely figure. She is dressed in love letters, yet she has none of her own, only the red roses from strangers who come to see her in the circus.

I cant stop looking at her dress...it is so amazingly beautiful
And paramour also stricked me as rather melancholic. In a longing for a lost love kind of way, like she wears the letters of the one she only has memories of now.

Thank you and it's interesting that you put it that way because around the time I'd made this I was going through a really bad breakup and in a way, working on this particular painting was somehow therapeutic for me.

This is an interesting concept. She has a sad story and I like the addition of the red rose. Wonderful work with this beautiful picture.

WOW! She is beautiful!!! I love her dress! Each character you draw makes me want to find the books you based the characters from and go read the book. I have the urge to cosplay her for Halloween one day, only after I read the book.
