Three Muses Challenge - Map - Paris Day & Night


A map challenge can only lead me to create more Paris inspired art....here is a vintage map of France that I used as a fun foreground in this piece...I added the hearts instead of stars as Paris is the city of love.....

Happy Wednesday Everyone....

It really is the City of Love and I like your butterflies for daytime and the hearts for stars at night.

Love it when you do the thing you do. Especially with maps! Diana, this is brilliant and oh-so clever. I don't know what it is about maps that makes my mind start flying, but I think it's obvious that it happens to you, too. And a Paris map to boot! Bonus!
