Monday Morning Art: Revisiting Miceala

You had to know that with all the photos I shot a couple of weeks ago during the dress rehearsals for the WVSO’s production of “Carmen,” that I couldn’t resist doing a little digital assaulting of them.  Well, this week’s dose of art is a digital drawing based on a photograph of the lovely Mariel Van Dalsum-Boggs as Miceala, the “good girl” caught up in the tragic love story in “Carmen.”  The grand artistry of the opera has inspired my meager efforts here.
