Joan of Arc is one of my very favorite people in history. Her life is one of the world’s most well documented and just about everything she did, said, ate, and wore has been recorded. At the age of 17, she led the French Military and seasoned battle veterans (included the horribly disgusting serial killer Bluebeard) to win major battles and end the 100 years war and occupation of France by the British. Her life is filled with miracles, trials and horrible betrayals. An amazing book to read on her life is by Mark Twain “The Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc”, who considered it his best book. It is the only book that I feel does her story justice.
So after playing around with an image I didn’t like… I re-did it. In color. I like it much better.
