Hennie's Fractal

I made this fractal for Hennie. It's sort of similar to the one I
made for Aya, though I started from scratch, but the colors are chose
for Hennie. I guess I was thinking of her red hair, freckles and
peachy skin. And colors that would go well with that combination.
This is for the collection I've started for Hennies pocket.

Self-portrait for a New Year

Self-portrait for a New Year, by Mary Stebbins Taitt.

I haven't been able to post for a while because my Picasa Web albums were (are) full. I had to create a new identity. Since I have so many stupid blogs, it's taken me a while, and I am not done yet.

This is done in water color, pen and ink, with a little digital manipulation. Click first image to view slightly larger. Click lower image to view much larger.
