Roses In Her Hair

This is the second of two Mixed Media paintings I finished up from works in progress over the weekend. I think I started this in November or December, but got sidetracked with some genealogy research and never quite got back to it. I'm glad to see it finally finished. 

Roses in Her Hair Mixed Media

I was actually inspired by the roses that were in some scrapbook paper that I had in my studio. They were my starting point and I decided that they'd look lovely in a girl's hair. So I created the girl and added the flowers when she was finished. This photo is actually a bit cropped from the original, because it's a little too big for my scanner. 

I'm really pleased with how she turned out. For some reason I'm frequently inclined to paint girls with pink hair...not sure why. :)
