The Three Muses Challenge - Give Us a Hand

I had clipped and saved this image of a hand with daisy in it knowing that one day I would use it in a piece. There was just something so evocative about it and I loved the symbolism in it. It seemed to blend perfectly with these two little girlfriends having a wonderful giggle together. I thought about all of the ways that friends give to one another willingly, lovingly and with no expectations or strings attached. This is my entry for the Three Muses Challenge this week.

Lovely collage, Heather! And your text says something essential about friendship. - Isn't it wonderful how some images just speak to us, they have that 'something' in them. And it's very important to keep those images for future use.

It is wonderful to open up a picture and feel the need to smile widely. Your picture has this effect on me. The small girls are beautiful and the "hand of friendship" is perfect for the theme.
