Goodness, it feels good to finish something! And isn't she beautiful? And mysterious? Like a modern madonna or something.
My friend Syntheia Finklepott makes Katwise-inspired recycled sweater coats, and this one is mine! Although that is not me. Although it would be kindof cool to have turquoise hair.

She got shuffled to the back sometime in my rush to get ready for Whimsical Women, so I'm bringing her back to the front.... so happy. Loving the blues too, although I have no idea where they came from. I think I'm at least as surprised by my art as anyone!
