Ink using nib and brush, a touch of graphite, on w/c paper.

This one is for and dedicated to the very lovely and talented autumnwind aka Shar.

Based on this photo of Shar:

I have included one of Shar’s fave flowers, Hibiscus: Rose of Sharon.

Thank you Shar for the request and honour of creating this for you. It was a delight :-)

    Lisa this is a FANTASTIC portrait of Shar!!! The color contrast of the hibiscus flowers and red autumn leaves pop off the page. Adore the twisted, curling locks blown by the wind. You captured not only her beauty, but this is perfectly in sync with her bubble name “autumnwind”. Beautiful work Lisa!!! xoxoxoxox – E

  • WOW….Thank you so much E…this is exactly what i was hoping to capture, Shar’s beauty as well as her bubble persona of autumnwind….such a wonderful comment…thank you for opening this creative door for me E. So greatly appreciated. xoxoxoxo
