The Head in the Bedroom

By woolybill1
In fact it's a black T-shirt dangling off the back of a chair in the corner of the room, its shadow cast by my reading light.
A quick contribution to Shadow Saturday as we'll be preoccupied with our French guests throughout. Catch up tomorrow evening, I hope . . .

Many thanks to Barbara barbarahirst Chris SlowSong and Pascal pascalg for placing their cherished User Awards on my upload yesterday; also to Danny danbrann who would have given me his if he'd had one to spare.

I would never had guessed what it was without the explanation Bill.

Now that Bill is spot on, very artistic well seen and yes it is so good reminds me of something I saw in an art gallery in London lately, I much prefer this one. excellent work and a fitting shadow for SS.

a good job you explained what it is Smile
fine abstract anyway!

Well seen and taken Bill. I would've been tempted to have drawn around the Shadow and shaded it in, so that when the T Shirt was removed, the Shadow remained Smile
