Mixed Media Monday - Famous People

Katrin is our guest host over at Mixed Media Monday again this week - and she has chosen "famous people" as her challenge prompt. My mind was racing with possibilities for this challenge. I was dreaming about doing something in all soft whites using Grace Kelly as the famous person, so I'm not quite sure how I ended up with Edgar Allan Poe and all these strong colours, LOL. The background is acrylic paint on water colour paper. This has been overstamped in white gesso (the script) and black gesso for the branches. Thanks for another fun challenge, Katrin!
