The most accurate likeness of the ill-fated queen of France, Marie-Antoinette (1755-1793). Painted in 1788, a short year before the French Revolution broke out. She never said "Let them eat cake." Her most famous quote should have been the last words she uttered. Mounting the scaffold to the guillotine, she stepped on her executioner's foot. "Excuse me," she said calmly. "I didn't do it on purpose." A fitting epitaph?

I chose Marie Antoinette as the theme of my first decoupage plate series because I felt like she was lost, even buried, erased, by the legacy she was destined to fulfill from birth to her untimely death at the guillotine. As I looked at the numerous illustrations and portraits of MA it struck me was that even amongst the official portraits no two looked at all alike - and each could have been of a different person, so much was the vision of Marie Antoinette in the eye of the beholder.
