This started out as a drawing....then I added watercolors....then went after it with an ink pen.
When I started it was a drawing of my mannequin in my studio, Fiona.  After I got done it didn't look like her as much as it did my mom when she was in her twenties.  I have a black and white photo of my mom and dad from the 50's.  Its sitting by my computer and I look at it everyday.  Its funny how images make an imprint on your mind, without even realizing it.  The body and clothing was Fiona, but when I drew the head and mom's image came out of my hand.  I didn't notice it until I took the photo and looked at it on my computer.......I love these little surprises.   

Thanks for looking and reading!
