Friday "Freebie"

I rarely create Asian-inspired art, yet I found myself drawn to it this past week while working on a journal project for a swap. Since I needed a Geisha, I combed the halls of the Library of Congress, as well as a few other sources, and found this exotic creature. Originally she was black and white, but I hand colored her for my artful purposes, and thought I'd share her with you. The entire time I worked on her outfit all I could think about was one of my favorite books, "Memoirs of a Geisha". Something tells me that you'll find wonderful stories for her!

May you have an inspired day!
