Wildhaired Winged Woman

I've just finished tweaking this piece.  I tend to overwork my art pieces, but I like to hang unfinished ones in my kitchen, where I can study them from time to time and change what needs changing. 
She started right around Christmas, and I wanted to give her some wild hair.  And wings.  She started abstract, and I fiddled with her until I almost lost that abstract quality.  I like her.  Here is step one:
And after quite a lot of facial surgery, highlights, and implants, she morphed into this:
My dad's doctor saw me working on her yesterday and asked if she was from The Wizard of Oz.  Is she scary?

  1. Oh this is wonderful! She's not scary at all- Maybe she's irritated that you have still not picked up your room, or sad because of a major loss, or thoughtfully considering what to work on next, or studying something with great appreciation. I love pieces that can manage to really capture an expression, especially with such graphic pieces and prints, yet still leave some ambiguity and room for interpretation with the viewer. Lovely!


Please let me know what you think.
