Three Muses Challenge - "Stars"


This week over at Three Muses....the challenge is "Stars" and immediately I thought of Marilyn Monroe...one of my favorite stars....she is and will always be an icon...

This is a watercolour painting I did as a tribute to her and is sold and currently residing in The United Kingdom....what fun!!!

Gorgeous, Diana. Love your artwork. Have you ever thought about submitting your art to Puzzle companies...I always think about what beautiful puzzles your artwork would make. It is unique and so beautifully defined...Hugs, Gayle.
