Fly Away

You know how I love color.....
and this certainly has color!  I wanted to use one of my paintings as a background.  Actually I combined a watercolor of an orchid spray and another painting.  Then I wanted to add elements like the image of the girl, the hand and the bird.  I think I ended up with 16 layers here.  I'm not totally pleased with it because the hand and bird don't really show up.  I probably could have fiddled with a blending mode but I'm sort of "done" with it, if you know what I mean.  I'll practice on something else.
