Wistful

It has been some time since I posted. I've been "under the weather" with a sciatica problem. I had done the background for this a while back and just added the figure and some finishing touches in the last few days.

I used some of the beautiful decorative paper napkins I received from Lin. I "painted" her dress with one, used another for the hanging branches above. I added some of my own branches with raw umber acrylic. I also added a couple flowers in the lower left corner. I'm happy with the results. Now if I can just get my back to feel normal again so I can function.....
Peace

Another wonderful piece. You seem to have a natural ability with color combos! I love the textural chicken wire as well as the faint blush that works so well with the green.
