Crazy Amigo Challenge - Insects; Created ByHand Challenge - Thinks that Fly


I decided this morning that, in the interest of time, I would post a piece that fits the themes of both the Crazy Amigo and Created ByHand challenges this week. This little girl has always looked pensive to me as though she is dreaming so I decided to portray her in what I perceive to be her dream and have her leaning on a lily pad surrounded by butterflies. The colour of the background is rather dark and strange but it somehow suits a dream state I think.

Before I even read what you had written, I thought how mysterious the background looked. It is gorgeous and the dark color makes the beautiful little girl stand out even more.
