By Whatever Name

For the last couple of days I've been playing around with Ester Roi's technique of heat applied to colored pencil. Since I can't afford an Icarus board right now, I have a makeshift one. I am experimenting with colored pencil right now but intend to try some mixed media next. I was pleasantly surprised that the heat really does soften the pigment and blends well. In this first effort, however, I was fighting the paper as what I used had a definite texture to it and it was difficult to fill in all the hills and valleys. So, I'm going to move on to the next subject and let this one be. Any guesses as to what this is?
