So pretty! I love the feeling of this painting!

Alisa said...

thanks so much you guys! This one was a challenge, so many colors, and so much detail that I wanted to convey w/o getting too fussy.

I'll post the original photo later today when i get home, the skirt is amazing, and even more amazing is the artist who made it- Susie, she is the one in the photo:)
