    Waiting for Him

    The war is over. She sees him step off of the train.

    Crayons, airbrush, pencil, watercolor,oil, and knife on smooth canvas.
    I've been working off and on for a few weeks on her. I will see something else to do no doubt. I wanted to make a woman with a large hat, and had my mother in mind, as she looked a lot like this in her younger years. This era has always appealed to me for some reason. Anyway, I used references of the hat and coat from DVA and internet, but palette, and person from imagination.
    I hope you enjoy.

    Sandy, I really like this a lot! I've long been a WWII era junkie, and you are right on with her. Excellent job.

    Thank you dear Jasmine! I am really enjoying the crayon on cell. Great control and work great with the knife. I appreciate your generous comment!

    Alexandra... you always come up with the most interesting works!... and this is no exception... love the stylistic interpretations , her hair and expressions and the blacks... as I get older I too am drawn to the clothes and styles and people of the 30's and 40's ( I am addicted to a variety of BBC tv shows that take place in this era )... guess it is a way to understand my parents... anyway this is a beautiful work as always from you.
