Pan Pastels, Acrylic Paint and Tea Bags Again

I drew this face some time ago, and she has shown up in a variety of my creations ever since. 
I wanted to try painting with white acrylic and pan pastels again, and used her as well as a bird I drew some time ago to get me started. 
 
 I really enjoyed creating this piece as I added layers of pastels, paint and pencil onto layers of tea bags.
The piece is about 8X10 inches
 
 and fits into an  11X14 inch mat.

  8. Kim, this piece is gorgeous. I love the feeling here, not only because she is so beautiful but the way her gaze looks toward the future...
    Happiest of new years to you! (I probably wished you this before, but oh well!)
