Someone came up with the idea of painting the main cast from “Interview with the Vampire,” and I said, why not? For one thing, I was intrigued by the idea of mixing up the paint that best exemplifies vampire skin (I shall call the color: “Vampire Pallor”). For another, I was dying to paint some fancy schmancy 19th century French overcoats.

I’ve read my share of vampire literature, but I’ll have to say my favorites are “The Radleys” by Matt Haig and the enormous tome by Deborah Harkness entitled “A Discovery of Witches” (trust me, there are vampires galore in that book). No “Twilight” sagas for this gal!
