#InMyStudio - A haunting beauty...

This is a complete makeover of an old piece I did in April 2014 and it was buried deep at the back of old pieces.  I never finished it - the size and complexity of it overwhelmed me so I hid it away.  Do you ever do that?

Leaving it that long and coming back to it now, meant I had completely outgrown it.  I love the magic of gesso.  I started working and reworking and this hauntingly beautiful face appeared.  I love how unusual she is... she's captivated me for sure.
I'm excited to finish this piece... it's big but not huge.  It's 20"x30"canvas board.
I can't wait to get back to finish her.  I will keep you posted.
