QUEEN--5 little letters to celebrate your inner diva

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Meet Top Model Dog, Trixie...

Italian Greyhound extraordinaire
and (dare I say?)
QUEEN of Florida!

She is my most recent painting....the one that I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning putting the finishing touches on. She possesses more bling than I have ever known. Oh, but those jewels, that wink, and posture!

In honor of Trixie's portrait I dedicate today to celebrating the diva that lives inside each of us. I hereby announce you: DIVINE!

Trixie knows her inner Queen.
Do you?

"Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail.
Failure is another steppingstone to greatness." ~Oprah

These letters are part of an ongoing project:
"WORD OF THE DAY :: living life one word at a time."
Today's word is QUEEN. Rule your own destiny.
