Here is my latest creation, the "Birdcage Woman". I couldn't think of a better name, sorry. I had this vision of a woman wearing a birdcage in her hair with birds flying in and out of the cage. I made a sketch a few months ago and I never really knew how to finish it, until a few days ago when it came to me. The key was adding the branch that burst out through the cage and really added to the composition. I added a few more little cages and some birds and Voila'! The paper background is an old lace napkin that I scanned a while ago and changed the colors to make it tonally green.
What do you think? If I get a good response, I will make a matching silhouette facing the other way and offer them as a set.
