"Sad Girl" - 2008

I wanted to do something colorful and cheery, and I liked mashing up all kinds of colors here. I call it "Sad Girl" because despite the colors, she looks kinda melancholy.

I know the background elements don't make a lot of literal sense, but I just wanted something there without them being too intrusive.

With the very-vertical orientation and heavy black frame, I was consciously mimicking the general layout of my Lauren Bacall piece, which I was really happy with and wanted to try again.
