I made this for my living room wall. I'd like, eventually, to cover the entire thing in various paintings, by myself and others.   I toyed with a few different head and hair shapes, but I really liked the beehive.

however, the picture looks a little sterile to me.  I think it needs something, I just don't know what.

Any ideas?

I love ornate frames, and think a really good one would look super great around this!

I love it, although I'm not quite sure what you could add to it. Maybe a bow at the bottom? Or some kind of fringing to make it look like it's in an antique frame. Wink
It is wonderful though. Well done!

An antique/vintage frame would make it really pop!

maybe you should add something 3 dimensional to make it more playful.  You could put a hair accessory in her hair, or maybe a string of beads as a necklace.  It would give it some more personality.

It's really really cute as is though.

I love it!  A ribbon of blue or red around her neck would work, or a tiny bow in the corner of her behive...

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

It reminds me of the French animated movie Princes et Princesses. I like it! ^_^

I really like the beehive, too. I agree that pearls or something of the like would look great. And maybe an ornate frame to give the cameo look. Well done!
