New Painting! (beginning stages)

What's on my easel!
This is a big painting on 20"x24", and still very much @ the beginning stages.
I'm doing a bit of 'pull art',collaging so far, and playing with colors. The little flying creatures are peace birds. They are gentle,have little wings and long skinny legs. Because there wings are so tiny, they don't fly like ordinary birds but kind of float along peacefully while flapping their little wings gently. They can also just stand in mid air for a long period of time. It's their way of relaxing;-)
The little creature below ..just happens to be there, and
 don't really have a name for him/her ;-)

 Progress on my painting. I worked on the little girl , gave her
a dress, painted, and also used oil pastels. Focuses
also on the little creature , and wanted to bring him
out more so I gave him an aura to make him shine.
Added some little whimsical crayon houses.
A touch up on the peace birds.
Now on with the show.......;-)
