5/2011 Update: Sold…thank you so much!!!
I wanted to revisit this little piece of art and see how much farther I could take it. The first version had a dark brown background and was kind of plain to me. It sold, which is always a good feeling but I thought it could be even better. So here is the new, revised addition…(-:
This started out as a color print but I used acrylics, inks, and colored pencils to transform it. So I consider it an original, mixed media. Now she has eyelids, eyebrows, and a new depth to her eyes and nose. I embellished the background and added lace to her top. Here she is and I’m including a picture of the first version below that.
