Mysterious wind

A common "trick" for creating dynamic images is to introduce flowing elements, such as long hair, ribbons, bits and pieces of clothing, flower petals etc. Even in a boring indoor conversation you can liven things up and create atmosphere by drawing these elements as if moved by some mysterious force. It's can be a form of abstraction, but people rarely complain.

Drawings of something happening is usually a lot more interesting than something static, even if the only thing happening is hair flowing in the wind.
