I started and nearly completed my latest work two weeks ago, but I ended up just finishing it today. I've started to work full-time again which leaves me less time to finish my art projects. I am happy with the way it turned out. I have two titles in mind for the image, but I can't choose which one I like the most. It is between The Reluctant Bride and The Midnight Walk.
I didn't have a definitive idea in mind when I was constructing the image, but now that it is completed I can see a story in it. I think the veiled woman looks like a bride walking down the aisle in a nighttime wedding in the woods, possibly an arranged marriage. She is weeping and dragging her feet as she walks. Then again I could also interpret her as a sleepwalker who has pulled the blanket off her bed and is beginning her walk into the night. I guess I can leave it up to all of you to decide what you see!

I very much like the veil/covering the woman is wearing. I made it from a dolie. The stars are made from a sparkly film, so it looks quite nice in the light.
For my next work, I am going to be turning my sketch of I'd like to be a Fox (as seen above on the far right) into a paper collage. I am excited to get started!
