I was inspired to do this one initially by the pose in Andrew Wyeth's painting "Christina's World". I love the twist in her back. As I was working on her, I was listening to "Hell Cats", a rollicking good tale of the adventures of Anne Bonny and her good friend Mary Read, the infamous lady pirates of the Caribbean in the 1720s. Arrrrrrgh. So she morphed somewhat into Anne Bonny, lying on the beach, looking out to sea. The name of the ship they co-captained was the 'Virtue'
