1986 pen & ink.
This is the 3rd of my "Jar Ladies" series. My fascination with combining plant form with the human form is shown here with a whimsical flowing movement - dance like! These ladies definitely display a faerie quality, a light playfulness and yet there's a darker, mysterious feel to the picture, brought out by cross hatch fine detail of the black ink line. This adds to the magical feeling of this piece.
This print is hand colored to enhance the depth of color.
