She's finished! The piece is currently titled "Green Shade Gate".I enjoyed the suggestions about her hair colour- it's auburn and so many of you guessed correctly! What is in the basket? Lavender. I think she's heading to the Galiano Island Saturday market to sell fragrant fresh bunches. The suggestion for the basket to be filled with mushrooms was delicious. She's in a deciduous forest though so I think another piece with a lady in a coniferous forest searching for chantrelles would be lovely.
She's not entirely completed- this piece will be placed in a black or dark brown floating frame.
What is my next project? A hint... I'm doing a huge desk cleanup- buying a new can of butane and unwrapping my new firing block. Wish me luck!
