*Grace Domestica* at Sheroes 10

Made this Grace Jones inspired mask digitally for Sheroes 10. I enjoyed this process and the fact that other people enjoyed her too!

I really enjoyed also that I could intimate what I considered to be the fierceness of Grace Jones, which I never considered remotely domesticated, through my usual process of fabric and floral play which is considered to be very domestic.

Sheroes 11 is fast approaching and though I'm superbly late, I'm looking forward to conjuring up some Dusty Springfield :]

Keep good,
