Inspiration Avenue Challenge-Sad Girl with Flowers in Her Hair

Over at Inspiration Avenue, Kim challenged us with creating an image around a truly unique theme.  She calls it, "Sad Girls With Flowers in Their Hair."  At first, I was unsure about the whole idea.  It seemed more specific than most of our themes.  As I began to think about it, I realized that lots of people were enthusiastic about it and many said they were eager to create something around it.  I can't resist placing flowers in my images so my muse got to work.  It wasn't until I found a cavalcade of textures and backgrounds on Ruby Blossom's Flickr page that I was truly ready to compose my image.   Thank you Kim for thinking outside the box once again, and for inspiring us to create art.

I also have a wonderful website to tell you about.  The artist is Kirsty Mitchell and she's created a beautiful body of work entitled "Wonderland."  You've got to visit the site and see the images for yourself.   Her work took my breath away.   You'll see why her work is so appropriate for our theme this week.  Once you read the story of how she created this beautiful portfolio, you'll probably be both inspired and overwhelmed.  Please go take a look as a treat to yourself.  Her work is filled with colorful texture and beauty.  I know I'll return there again and again, just to soak up the beauty.
Here is the link. Enjoy.
