Bird Woman Dancer

Bird woman dancer

Inspired by Greek figures of bird headed women, combined with a wish to start exploring putting borders around my pictures!

As I was working on it I kept on thinking of carnival masks and dance.

I particularly liked the borders used here in Janey's Journey.

I love this! I love the texture of the background and definitely the border adds depth and more texture and interest! And a kind of containing boundary that she is jumping out of!

Most definitely love it! :)

Thank you everyone - I think I may have hesitated to post it because it is my wild side - and that's been feeling a bit cramped lately... I really appreciate your comments.
