I tried out all kinds of backgrounds for this crazy hat lady. Nothing worked until I tried the paisley. Yes, it's a little, um, busy. But I just went crazy with the prints and I do love the richness of all that pattern. I think pattern is where my head is these days.
Where did she come from? I thought I was embarked on a series of architectural images, but after I finished the domes I just kept seeing this crazy hat in my mind. (it actually looks a little like a paisley shape in itself, doesn't it? Do you call just one a "paisl"?) Now I am envisioning different kinds of hats. Maybe "hats" is my new thing. Ironic, because I look stupid in hats. My head is way too big. Maybe this is my way of dealing with hats.
Who says my art doesn't express deep emotions?
