I wonder why he made her hold a dead bird…

I was browsing Getty’s Open Content yesterday. There are some wonderful images there, including some gorgeous photography. And then I saw her: Could this be my Patience?

So today I’ve been working on giving her a little color:

As you can see, it’s still very much a work in progress. She needs a new background of course, and a cat. 🙂

  2. Wow! It seems your Photoshop skills are far in advance of my own! (And, yes, a cat would be better than a dead bird, as long as it isn’t a dead cat. Or maybe Schrödinger’s cat in there as a compromise…)
