"The Red Dress"

This is done on a gallery wrapped canvas. I applied tissue paper and pages from a magazine to the background and painted the tissue paper black. I then drew on the face and painted it with acrylics and added some white and black charcoal. This is the first painting I have done since before Christmas. I guess the mood just hit me today. I have cabin fever pretty bad and doing my art sure helps pass the time.

I'm thinking about adding something to the top right area. Can't decide. Any suggestions?
