Illustration Friday "My Paradise"

© Kathleen Rietz 2007
In my idea of paradise, I have wings like a butterfly and live in a beautiful garden filled with flowers and creatures who come alive through my artwork.
This collage is a mix of my original artwork, my photos and a background texture I created with watercolor and coarse salt.

  7. I think I might get creeped out with all those bugs hanging around. Maybe I could light one of those citronella candles.

  25. What a wonderful image! It feels like Alice in Wonderland a little bit, very surreal. Love the colors a lot. The fairy seems sad, almost as if she won't look around at what a wonderful place she's in. I want some wings.

    Great job!! :-)
