Tree with roots!

This one was inspired by my college roommate, Alice, who had (probably still has) the most amazingly beautiful, curly red hair I’ve ever seen on anyone. And it went with her looks, too. She’s quite stunning.
Tom Robbins wrote something about redheads, once:
“The harsh truth is, most red-haired men look like blondes who’ve spoiled from lack of refrigeration. They look like brown-haired men who’ve been composted out behind the barn. Yet that same pigmentation that one a man can resemble leaf mold or junkyard rust, a woman wears like a tiara of rubies.”
So, I drew her in black and white! And she is a very clean person. A spider would never, ever, ever find its way into her hair!
