Ok, I think it's done... Originally I hadn't planned on doing such a detailed background, but
wondered about what kind of a background I would be doing and that got me thinking and of course I couldn't think of a thing so I asked my lovely daughter
for ideas and she suggested the cliff path with trees and a river in the distance. So I looked online for photos of Misty mountain paths and I found one of a cool man made path in the mountains in China and adapted that with her idea and Voila! This is what I came up with.
Inspired by the wonderful art of

So this one is dedicated to both my lovely daughter
and my friend
Thanks to both of you!
I started to color this with colored pencils but it wasn't showing up as clearly as I wanted it to on the dark paper, so I ended up adding in some Acrylic paints. I wasn't sure if that would work on the Cardstock paper, but it seems to be fine since I was sort of painting over the colored pencils in most places where I was trying to brighten it up. I honestly thought when I started to paint that I was going to ruin the whole thing. I was happily surprised when it worked.
Thanks for your faves and comments, they are, as always, greatly appreciated!
