W is for Woman in White

It feels like winter today - clear and cold. But, this is a special day. We are celebrating the third birthday of my favorite boy.

Today's image is Woman in White. I mentioned in an earlier blog that I have been playing with torn paper collage. This wide-eyed woman is built on a drawing I sketched onto canvas (18"x24"). I especially enjoyed creating the swirls in her eyes and her curls. I added warm colors to the background. Looking at it now, I wonder why.

This is the birthday boy. He tells me he will be very tall when his birthday comes. Today's the day.
