Very nice work — would be time well spent combing dreams out of that head of hair.

Eva said...

Lovely drawing! The idea of uncontrolled growth within one's hair reminds me of worried Rastafari parents.

Clowncar said...

so nice. lovely.

I also thought (along with Lorenzo, appparently) how difficult it would be to comb. tangles of dreams.

Tom said...

did you see the crazy hairdo's in the BibliOdyssey post some months back? This reminds me of that, and it is spectacular, btw!

Tom - I think we talked about those - before the French revolution, they had wigs with ships and other fantastic creations on top.

This is one of my favourite pieces of your work Susan. She has the most satisfied smile. Quite wonderful xJ

ArtSparker said...

Thank you, Jasmine. I was pretty happy with it, I think i find feminine subjects challenging sometimes.

Jenny Woolf said...

Reminds me a bit of Edward Lear's limerick about the old man with a beard. Except that it is on the top of her head!

grrl + dog said...

She has a fertile mind..

Steve said...

Love this... reminds me of the illustrations in Alice In Wonderland which I think is a wonderful reference.

Cláudia said...

I see a light bulb lamp in the ensemble of her hair and head.

Talking about light - it's amazing how much light you can obtain from cross hatching - some spots in the darkness glow magnificently!
