Trying something new with this one. I am often found at the local Goodwill, can’t get enough. I know other artists who have done something like this – you take an old painting from a thrift store and add your own painting addition to it. Originally, this was a portrait of this little girl and her cat and a typical landscape background. I went through a couple different ideas to add to this one > the Cheshire Cat hanging from her arms for example. I landed on a giant lion laying behind her. (I’m facepalming for not taking a before photo- next time.)
Steve says the lion fits in too well. On the next one I find I think I’ll make it a little more obvious that I added it. : ) Might have to do this with girlfriends sometime.
*Gah, the sun has gone down already – the color here is way off. I’ll try adding a better photo tomorrow.
