Three Muses - Stars


My father always told me to hitch my wagon to a star, and convinced me I could do no wrong. What a cheerleader he was! This one's for you, Dad! The background and village are mine, the overlay is from Rubyblossom, and the wee lass is from a painting by Jesse Wilcox-Smith. Wagon is googled.

  12. Hi Bev, I pulled my husband in to see this gorgeous piece because his parenting philosophy is just like your Dad's. I wanted him to see from your perspective how profound and lasting his loving influence is likely to be. He was very appreciative, and also as a novice at Photoshop, LOVED all the detail and the composition. So thank you for the many layered gifts of this piece! ~Sharon
