Illustration Friday - MIRROR

Life is like a mirror
We get the best results when we smile at it
The Illustration Friday topic for this week is MIRROR.  
Took a big step in my art journal and painted directly into it - I'm usually pretty chicken about that - at least 90% of the time I draw/sketch/paint on another piece of paper and collage it into my journal. Started with a funky background then
started in on the girl - I've painted enough that this stage doesn't faze me anymore - I know that it will eventually get better. . .
Pretty fun that the background paint resulted in two different colored eyes.

Yay for you! So proud of you for diving into your sketchbook and working directly on the pages! I know that can be a challenge. Your girls get more and more beautifully done each time!
