Take a Word - HATS


The beautiful flowered hat comes from a "new" painting by Vincent van Gogh.  I found the picture in my online news of the day.  Apparently, there is no signature to the painting but it has now been verified as a van Gogh.  I hope he will forgive my using it for my own purposes.  I made the background using the same picture, blended over a blue background with lines running through it.  The face should be well-known as she is used in different guises from time to time (my own work).
The faint white swirls are by CryztalRain at Deviant Scraps.

I am convinced that Vincent would be satisfied and smiling Marie and
perhaps he would fall in love with this charming beauty! :-)

The halftone effect on the background is stunning too !!

Oh now, that is what I call a HAT, Marie, so I can't imagine why your lovely wistful girl is looking so sad. There is some very loud applause coming your way.
