Creative Heart Monday - Caribbean Queen Mixed Media Painting




Happy Creative Heart Monday!!

Today's painting turned out a little different than I had planned.  My girl was going to have teal hair. I added a little black around the face to add some drama....it looked like black hair and I liked it, so I went with it.  It just goes to show that you never know what might happen when your painting.  You have to keep an open mind!!
