Beautiful work! This piece and the full figure "Storm" are my favorites. You're draughtswomanship is great; and I love the randomness of line and texture in the hair and negative space. -Gerry

Wandering aimlessly.
Dawn, this is just marvelous.
Eventually I will probably stop at
all your pieces and leave a comment.
Charcoal really excites me when it's done well.
Your talent reigns.
