Woman Much Missed

"Woman much missedhow you call to me, call to me" ~ Thomas Hardy, The Voice 

Title: Woman Much Missed
Material: Acrylic on Plaster of Paris
This is a new technique for me. I poured a sheet of dental plaster, carved it while it was still softish, and then painted it with acrylic. The obverse side, having hardened on a sheet of laminated paper, is glass-smooth and I'll use that too for another painting.
This is a photo of the painting. Because of the uneven surface it did not scan well.
