I feel pretty...


... said Mona as she surveyed her new look in the mirror. It was about time she had injected a bit of colour into her life, and the new eyes her plastic surgeon had suggested were a welcome relief from looking so moody for the past 500 years or so. Sometimes it's a tough life being an icon of art history.

Mona and I have been having fun together all weekend. She's more of my art experimentation from my new course which I have to confess I am enjoying immensely. I played with paper and glue, threw in a bit of doodling and collaged to my heart's content.
She's also the perfect entry to Mixed Media Monday's 'I feel pretty' theme. Don't you agree it was time that Mona had a makeover?

  9. I couldn't agree more. At the very least she needed to exfoliate. She looks very Hollywood.

  10. Well, I think Mona's looking refreshed!! You know, as for the rest of it, I couldn't agree with you more... I used to be a bit of a perfectionist myself. Now I have taken my head out of my a***, I can see more clearly that most of my creations are fun! Quirky is good too! 'o)

  12. Mona must be a strong woman to contend with all the altered versions of her we see! This one is gorgeous!! I love the fact that she has been surgically enhanced with, no doubt, a liberal dose of botox here and there. I bet she would love those plump lips!
    Fantastic artwork.
