Virginia W - Helen

While my portrait could be 'anyone', an idea developed from a greeting card that featured an abstract illustration of the writer Virginia Woolf. The card included part of one of her many short quotes. This one really appealed to me -
         "I don't believe in aging.
          I believe in forever altering one's aspect to the sun."
This quite troubled lady who lived from 1882 to 1941 was the author of many varied works. My portrait is 'somewhere' between the card and photographs of Virginia Woolf.
I apologise for my late post this time. I was fortunate to be in the travel group to the USA - I've mentioned this only because I bought the card in the Pike Place Markets in Seattle. And we all had a great time!
