A New Light (and Shadow)

The drawing
The woodcut
I was goofing off, drawing and sipping tea (a very familiar scenario in this house!) and noticed some fabulous shadows happening on my paper... so I traced them right on the paper. I'm sure I'm not the first person to ever do this, but It's still a very exciting discovery for me. Can you guess what it is??

Is it your hair and earrings maybe? Or a houseplant?
The shadow knows...
Fun process!

i was here earlier but had to come back to take another look. it almost looks like a basket with all those loopy shadows and tiny holes... okay, that's my guess.

Wow, those were some interesting guesses! Thanks for you comments :) I'm glad to know it's not completely obvious. I hate to give it away too much but, Beth - you got part of it!

I'm doing a series of these with this particular subject matter...I'm really loving it!
