As I was thumbing through one of my folk art books, I stopped to study an image of a woven basket. The design had a human-like figure but no face. I thought is was really sweet and naturally I had to give my version a face.
I had to have something with a little bit of green in it since today is St Paddy's day but as you can see, this is about as far away from an Irish "anything" as you can get. :)
