Ode To Spring

We have had a couple of lovely sunny days here and I found myself longing for Spring! This is my entry for the Take A Word challenge this week where the theme is "Butterflies". I used a lovely image from Dover and altered her with the Fresco filter for a painterly look. I digitally colored her eyes, florals and skin tones. Butterflies are from Holliewood at Deviantart.

  8. Your Ode to Spring is so inspiring. I love the contrast beetween the main figure and its almost non-colors and the colorful butterflies.
