Her Heart on the Shore with the Rest of the Driftwood

driftwood5-2driftwood5-3driftwood

Her Heart on the Shore with the Rest of the Driftwood. 
Inspired by The Dark Heart of Dunwich. The Dark Heart of Dunwich is a Suffolk legend from the 12th century. Eva, a Dunwich maiden, was due to be married to the son of a local landowner, but she fell in love instead with a worthless cad who soon deserted her. She cut out her heart and hurled it into the sea. Unable to die, she is purported to roam the shore. The heart, similar in appearance to wood, is believed to sometimes wash up onto the beach and brings great misfortune to anyone who picks it up.

Work in progress. As you can see, I wasn’t sure where I wanted that fellow’s left arm to be. I finally decided that he needed to shade his eyes.
