“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives 

are princesses who are only waiting 

to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. 

Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, 

something helpless that wants our love.”

    1. I used bits of a decorative napkin for the hair. It just happened to fall out of my collage stash and was perfect.

  4. Love you've kept the air of the exotic in this one. Always fascinates me that Rilke acted as secretary to Rodin - the arts all tie together.

    1. I had forgotten that bit about Rilke being Rodin's secretary. I agree that the arts are connected by a thin but durable tie.

    1. The board I started on had some muslin and texture glued to it. Think that made the brush strokes show up more.
