I think this one is finished. I may have to look at it for a couple of days to be completely sure.
Inspired by lyrics from a Michael Franti song: "I believe that what you sing to the clouds will rain upon you when your sun has gone away"

It's done mostly in acrylics, with watercolors for the girl, and polymer clay for the little hearts and the bucket. I cut the cloud and the hill out of foam board, which took 2 or 3 attempts and was more trouble than it was really worth, but I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out.

Here's the best close-up I could manage to show some of the details. Her tiny rain-boots are my favorite part!


And a full shot. For some reason my little camera does not take very good pictures sometimes. I get to chose between out-of-focus, or washed out with the flash.

I'm glad that you showed the closeup.  I would have had a hard time seeing the poly clay pieces and the foam core pieces.

This is an excellent multi-media piece.  You've done a great job on it.

I was scrolling threw the art board and this jumped out at me. It is so cute, great job.
