The Caster - I love this image and it is a composite of many individual images. A caster is a witch I guess - it is a person who casts spells. I first heard this term in the book Beautiful Creatures. I wanted to portray a female caster (yes they can be male) but not necessarily a image resembling a witch, pointy hat broom and all. I love the wet damp feel of this - the mist in the woods. Couldn't help throwing in the Halloween images of the pumpkins and the familiar black cat. The red umbrella makes the whole image come together and the bright red color with all the dark green in the trees just seems to pop.
