Daphne's Story...

I'm sure that "Daphne" has a story to tell. I believe that all of us do. As I create these women, I think about their story...
who are they?
Where are they from?
What did they do?
That's all part of my creative process... BELIEVING that these people were in fact, real people with names.
I do not name them until they are nearly completed and then suddenly, I just come up with a name for the face! Where the name, "Daphne" came from, I'll never know, but she is a Daphne, and she is pictured above from the 1920's.
Fun, huh?
Possibly, she was a performer in a smoke-filled jazz club. She loved bold colors and flirting with the fellas, I BELIEVE.
Once again, a 5"x7" colored pencil piece, on Stonehenge art paper.
And that's my story for tonight. Now, I'm off to bed!
Sweet dreams to all!

  1. Daphne is gorgeous! I can picture her dancing the night away, doing the Charleston, her purple fringe swinging to the music. :)
