Weekly Challenge~ ROMANCE


This is my very first challenge for Inspiration Avenue. The theme this week is 'Romance' so I painted up this girl in vibrant, rich tones on 6 x 8 watercolor paper. She's a young woman, waiting and hoping for the romance that ALL the fairy tales have promised. She knows he's out there.....she just knows it deep inside.

I also did a quirky little abstract which I (sorry to admit this) LOVE! :)
Happy Friday!
