Colored pencil over graphite. This is a detail shot: There's more "cosmos" in the original, which is 11 x 14" (this is all I could fit on my scanner). Any comments are welcome...and valued! I'm trying to do imaginative work of some psychological depth and complexity and--with any luck--a little originality. Thank you in advance for any reactions, pro or con!

Hi Terri, nice drawing! I think the title fits it very well and even adds to our understanding of the work. I think you acheived your goal of psychological depth with the pale skin tones and the facial expression. To me the background almost mimics a dream state. My only critique would be on the lack of symmetry in the top of her head. But its still a strong piece. Nice work! :thumbsup:
