when she grows up

Happy All Souls Day! Apologies for how rough-hewn this is. I'm not getting around very well, so a good half of my supplies are out of reach. Plus, my usual scanner just died, so I had to use one with unfamiliar graphics software. The more I tried to clean this up, the worse it got. =sigh=

Hallowe'en is my favorite holiday, though, so I had to make something, however crude. At least I managed to capture the image I've been carrying around in my head: a little girl doing dark magic in a dark forest on a dark night.

Background by Gustave Dore. Woman from Salvador DalĂ­'s "Les roses sanglantes" ("The Bleeding Roses").


  1. However rough you think this is I think this looks perfect! Every element meaningful, the hand wrought lasso ties everything together. Fantastic Dali, perfect.

    1. Thank you, Angie! Your comment bucked me up on an otherwise dismal day.

  2. Most excellent, Fi, and your idea of a little girl doing dark magic comes through completely. I'm trying to imagine exactly WHAT she is doing...??
