Work in Progress

This week's  Three Muses Challenge topic is "Quips and Quotes."  I happened to be working on the collage/painting below and thought it fit well with the theme.  This piece is still a work in progress, but so far I am really liking it.  I kind of let go while doing the background.  I just kept playing until I got to a point that I liked.  It was a lot of fun.  The little girl in this piece is my niece Sophie- I adore her, she brings so much joy to my life.  She is quite the fashionista and I did this piece to celebrate her silly, stylin' self. :)

How beautiful! I love the way you have composed your picture with all the different moods (and changes of dress) of your little niece, layered into a soft and misty background. What a treasure it will be for her to keep. Wonderful artwork. Thanks so much for joining in the challenge this week.

Sophie will always treasure this illustration of her child self. The background is a work of art on its own. Thank you for sharing!

Have to say that I made the best art there- Sophie herself. I love what you did with her photos. You know we are stealing that when you are done right?
