"Coifed in Copper..."

...Heart #6 in my Sacred Heart Milagros ATC Series.
Soft and warm...worn with time...
she is
painted by nature
in glowing shades of verdigris.

"The world is an old woman,
and mistakes any gilt farthing for a gold coin;
whereby being often cheated,
she will thenceforth trust nothing but the common copper."
~Thomas
Carlyle

Love the color in this one, like an old, beautifully aged icon.
