Here we have my portrait drawing ( inspired by obscure historical writings that I've happened upon ) of an alleged 'Witch' who was named Mary Elizabeth L---- and who was reported to have been an inhabitant of " the settlement at Fort Lyman,in the northern region of the former colony of New Netherlands" ( now known as New York state ) before relocating to the "city of Montreal in New France before the Turning of Ye last Century". ( the Seventeenth into the Eighteenth ) Mary was said to bear "the Mark of Ye Devil" and she was rumored to have the "Powers of Flight" and of "Magical Concealment from Observation"
( Invisibility? Probably! ! )
My 'doodle portrait' of her was drawn ( delicately! ) on cheap 'newsprint' scrap paper and given some slight digital enhancing after I decided to save it and 'develop' it more thoroughly!
