After I painted in the figure (and even before), I was not sure how I was going to resolve the rest of the canvas. After I put down some pieces of paper, the painting was telling me it wanted to go abstract, yet I was still unsure how I was going to pull that off. I set it aside and thought I would finish it in pastels after the oil dried. I felt it needed a companion, so I started another one (which I'll post tomorrow) in the same fashion. After I put down the pieces of paper on this second one, I stood back and started to laugh. It looked like she had a lot on her mind. Mind you, these images are from antique mug shots. So, I decided to finish the first one in this "a lot on her mind" theme. I was too impatient to wait for the paint to dry, so I finished her in paint.
