Beauty Flowing - Art Creations Friday

This is my first real submission for Art Creations Friday.  This challenge was fun--especially since I have been sick and have not been able to do much more than sit on the couch and veg.  I find when I am expressing myself artistically I forget I'm feeling miserable.  I love Art Nouveau!

This, of course, is a re-make (as if anyone could actually remake anything by Mucha) of one of my favorite artists in the world, Alphonse Mucha.

To see more wonderful creations in all kinds of artistic venues, visit Art Creations Friday!

oh, look at her tail,
and
look at her hair! She is wonderful Beth. I am glad that art is helping you to feel a wee bit better. It is a centering, quiet thing and so it makes sense.
