Flora Comes to Life...

Saturday was a cloudy, rainy, windy, chilly day. You'd think it would be the perfect day to play in the studio but you'd be wrong! I tried...and I tried some more but nothing was happening. So I gave up and watched some videos and read.

Sunday was better although in the afternoon we had hail!  But I finally worked on a face that's been sitting in the studio staring at me for quite awhile...


Do you remember her...


For the longest time I just couldn't "see" her hair. Then I was looking through my patterned papers when I saw several papers with large blooms and they just spoke to me. I cut out several of the flowers, glued them on, and then using a dip pen and ink I outlined them all. And she's called Flora!
