My husband snapped a photograph of me when I was trying to clear my mind to concentrate on posing with a painfully enormous smile on my face to use as a reference for Cheshire Cat. I liked the image and another idea for a painting was formed.

I used silver metallic leaf and transparent oil paint on the eyes of the peacock feathers, as well as the face mask atop her head.
