I have an alternate title too, just like Rian. Mine would be called Down The Rabbit Hole. I have done this a couple of times now (twice) where I have reached too far and too hard for a project that didn't require it. I had several ideas and should have stuck with my original concept; it was the simplest to execute and conveyed what I wanted which was an abstraction of the colors and lines of that photo. The only thing I didn't add was the woman's outline-I ran out of time and was moving in the process.
Just a funny side note to the above: Everything was packed in my workroom practically but I left out some supplies. I did not leave out the exacto knives (I have two mind you) and so could not make a stencil for the woman or any line work. What I did have was contractors' tape so I did the line work with that.
My favorite parts of the piece are the colors and composition. It feels like a light filled scene to me-like I lit up the photo. The painting was done quickly, in one sitting, and with lots of energy and just a mental map of the overall design.
