Dancing Diva

One of Carla Sonheim’s art techniques is to draw a simple outline of anything and find a “creature” within the lines. It’s completely addictive and anyone can do it. Before you know it you see imaginary critters in everything (shadows, clouds, trees, linoleum). This diva started as the outline of a dead leaf.
