I began with a photo from an old calendar. I was drawn to the photo of the cavern. Although rock, the soft curves, shapes and colors belie its strength. I decided to use it as my background. I drew the image of the woman and adhered it to the photo. For hair, I cut the shape from a vivid fabric. For shading and the eyes and lips, I used fabric that complemented the colors of the cavern. I looked at the images meld together and thought the soft curves, colors and shapes belie the strength of both the cavern and the woman.
