I was looking at these lovely pictures from Alfonse Mucha and of some lovely Long Neck (I think from the Padaung tribe) women... that is what got my creative juices flowing. I am very happy with how she turned out.

*I guess in retrospect.. the heart is a bit eerie. But I wouldn't change it. It is not a cliche, sweet little heart. She may seem troubled, but she is an expression of what most women... I dare say feel. We often give freely of ourselves, listen to the burdens of others and often try to mend them as well. While we have great joy, we also have great sorrow. We are by nature, martyrs. And sometimes the cost can be a heavy burden. She is everything to everyone... she is the queen of her castle... and a very powerful being. But, will anyone come to help carry her burden? Not in this lifetime. xo
