  2. I wonder why she is sad? Your porraits always have hidden stories to wonder about.

  3. She's beautiful - you achieve such depth in your faces --wonderful! I think she just needs a long walk in the woods . . . .

  4. I love the texture from the collaged on pieces. Her eyes really do tell a story. Something about her feels so familiar- maybe someone I once knew. She's lovely, even if she's sad. I wanted to ask, are you getting your wallpaper from a remodeling job in your home or is it new?

  15. wallpaper!
    oh - i love this.

    i really do.
    i also love the idea of using wallpaper - i have some textured bits for frottage (which i am Sure i just misspelled) - i think i'll try them out in this way.

    i've ordered casein paint. my curiosity has gotten the best of me.

  16. I love all your new girls. She looks a little perturbed to me, or maybe I'm just projecting at the moment. :) Thanks for the sari silk link--can never have too much of that.
