Original title: “Unh-Oh”, was because I thought my depiction of Heather might be too rough, especially around the mouth. However she was gracious enough to accept this as a portrait of herself, so now she comes out of incognito and joins the Portrait Party.

And now I can also tell you about Canadian artist Heather Murray. She makes compelling and sometimes haunting multimedia works in which she juxtaposes people, animals and surroundings to create a unique universe using photos from other eras, painting and other collage elements.
