Lost . . .



This a piece of digital art that combines a challenge from
Artarazzi (the little girl and the moon) and a new challenge blog The Three Muses (the background started out as the Mona Lisa!). I cloned and smudged out the famous lady, deciding to use the background colors instead. The colors made me think of the sad little girl, so I added her and her moon on top after altering the both considerably. At the last minute, I decided to add a ghost of Mona back in so the little girl wasn't all alone anymore.

  1. Diane I love this so much I especially like the thought than Mona is there to keep the sad little girl company. Gorgeous.
