"Take Me Away"

Well, she's a work in progress & still needs a bit of finishing.  She needs to be darkened & the eyes need some work...so anyway, I've been creating her what seems like all summer long.  I started with the eyes, then worked around them, the hair just flowed & the flowers sort of blossomed all on their own.  The butterflies however appeared once seeing how much pain she was in, & realized that she needed someone to help *take her away*...so, the butterflies came.  What journey will she take with them, one can only imagine...

I'll post her again of course, once I feel like she's completed; give or take an hour, a day, a week or so...
