Three Muses Challenge - Legs

This picture had a life of its own. I used a face from a freebie by our lovely Ali Mayes and a body (overpainted) from a Flickr free-to-use picture and music and sheet music cover from Google. As I started to paint over the body template, beginning with the green spotted legs and then the green costume and wings, the sprite became a frog princess waiting for her prince. Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!

Thanks for your comments about the "Fan"!! I just love to push the edge a little every now and then... hoping that it will encourage other people to think a little outside the square... Thanks for the challenges, it does take a load off the other stuff that I do!!

Taluula said...

And a great story it is too, a frog princess, and a very pretty one at that. I'd say she won't have to wait long for her handsome prince to come riding by.

Don't you just love it though when your inner creative self takes over and out pops a really fun piece like this AND fully formed? Standing O from me.

Terri Kahrs said...

She's going to make a frog prince VERY happy, Marie! What a looker!!! Leave it to you to create a charming princess with a fairytale twist and a sense of humor to boot! Fabulous! Hugs, Terri xoxo

PS I DO envy your proximity to the ocean!!!
