Book Cover

A lovely baby girl was born. Her name is  Neva.  I had been  asked by my friend to make the cover for a book acquired in  a secondhand bookstore. My Croatian followers will know  it -  "Priče iz davnine" by Ivana Brlić Mažuranić. In a particular story the characters are the little girl Neva and the Sun. 

Here how I composed it:

and  on the back

It took severel hours to create the  chirpy girl - to braid strings for her arms and legs, to put  beads in her hair, to compose the Sun out od spiraled silk thread...

 My Neva is born. I like her very much.
