Deirdra. A Forest Girl

This is my latest creation, Deirdra.  She is a clay girl, that has some paper & fabric elements. Her head was originally not meant to tilt hardly at all, & then I didn't check on her while she was cooking in my oven, & oops, when I took her out, she was leaning over.  I guess you could say she was a happy accident, because I was thinking of pitching her in the trash, before I had painted her or anything.  Glad I didn't.  I embroidered a bit on her dress, & made her a beaded necklace.  I kept thinking of what I could put behind her & ended up finding a picture from last summer, I had taken in a forest, in Washington state.  I colored it some, making it reddish rust colors, & there you go.
