Hold on Tight

This is on an 8x10 canvas board.  I found this pic in a pile.  One of the girls had already cut it up, and discarded it from whatever they were going to do with it.  I took it, found a piece of cardboard, covered in paint, and went to town.  I am in LOVE with how this turned out!  I haven't made anything in a long time that made me this giddy.  The girls, Kelsey and Madison, before Paiger, were about 3 and 5 I think.
