Art Creations Friday - The Power of You


This week I was able to do the challenge for Art Creations Friday. They gave us the wonderful background and we were to do whatever we felt like. I decided to stay with the grayer tones and hint of browns. It feels rather fall, any way it gave me the needed excuse to use this young girl. She is so soulful.

Elizabeth, your use of the background makes for a stunning piece. The sweet image in the foreground stands out against the grayer tones of the background. It is beautiful.
