Art Creations Friday - The Gatherer



This week the Art Creations Friday Challenge was to use this darling image of this little girl. I decided to color her dress pink and go from there. I created this forest floor scene and then threw in the goat from the Graphics Fairy just because. It all reminded me when I was little and my grandmother would give me a bucket. Then she would send me out into her yard on some mission to gather something, peas, flowers, grasshoppers...anything to keep me from underfoot. I am calling this The Gatherer in her loving memory.

This is a fabulous presentation for this challenge. The little girl is so precious and I sure hope you have some Oats in the pail, looks like she wants to feed the bird and the goat...love the mushrooms too...you have tossed it out of the park with this one, Elizabeth! Love it. Hugs, Gayle.
