Mardi Gras

This is my entry for Mixed Media Monday.  Enjoy!!
I almost didn't enter this piece. All week I've been walking around in a daze and would just stare at my canvas! How I hate being stuck like that! and to be honest this theme was giving me trouble. So this afternoon as I was cleaning my brushes and putting everything away frustrated that I hadn't been inspired for this theme, plus it was Valentines day and all the radio stations were playing these sobby stupid songs adding to my frustration...Not everybody has a valentine to celebrate with!!!  you idiot djs!!  my valentine is far away...uhhh. so anyway as I was putting my stuff away... it clicked!! just like that..Daisy my little valentine girl and my muse!! What would she dress up at carnivale ?  Just like that!!  so I sat down again and painted like I had a fever! Carnivale fever!! enjoy and hope you have a creative week!!!
