For The Record - Inspired by a song (85/ 99 Faces)

We have a new month and with it a new theme over at 

Art Journal Journey

FOR THE RECORD - INSPIRED BY A SONG

What songs inspire you - create a Journal Page around a songtitle or words in a song
and tell us on your page which song you chose.
Lovely talented Linda is our hostess this month.
I came up with (of course) another face -

I like the Bruce Springsteen version.


she is painted on the back of a calender page and No.85 /of  99 faces
and linked to PPF .

I took an image from an advertising magazine as a reference


Hope to see you at the challenge again!
Always great to see your art there!

  19. I told Valerie last night when I saw this latest challenge that I would be singing songs all day. This is no exception, since I love Brown Eyed Girl and am singing it right now. But I like it even more with your beautiful girl. The likeness is stunning. This is amazing.
