Artist's Description

White and black Chalk on black paper. Pastels

There is a story worth telling about this women. I purchased an extremely old book of poetry called Scotts Marmion that once belonged to Amy Carl Rand. She was a turn of the century artist that began to sketch fashion design and commercial costumes for The New York Times around 1910 after graduating from college. She wrote her name in the book in signature and dated it 1895 .The book was doodled in on some of the pages inside the book with very early designs and drawings. Most all of these are less than 1 or 2 inches big, as it was not a sketch book , but a study book for her lessons . She had doodled all through the pages, evidently when she was suppose to be studying. There was a faint outline of this women with no background at all. She is only about two inches big in the doodle . I decided to finish it for her. I drew her women weeping and then added period furniture reflected in the mirror. This women was started in 1895. I finished her in 2010. 115 years later. I hope I did her justice. I have no idea why the women is weeping . Maybe it was because she was incomplete.
