Artists in Blogland- "Soul" Challenge

Whew, I wasn't sure I'd finish in time to enter my new painting in the monthly challenge at Artists in Blogland hosted by Marcia Beckett...but, finish I did and here she is!
 For my working title, I've been calling it "Soul Music"  I may change it later but for now; 
I'm just happy to be done!  Go check out the link to see lots of other art full of "soul" and after the 31st, there will be a poll to vote for your favorite!  I'm really excited because there are a lot of artists I already know there plus a lot of "new to me" folks too!  Go check it out!
Cheers,
Stephanie
Update: If you've known me for a while, then you know that I just can't leave things alone!  I had issues with the negative space on the left side; felt like it made the right side bottom heavy.....anyway, I added some moons and stars and I think it is FINIS!

She was beautiful in the "BEFORE" painting but I have to admit that I really LOVE the "AFTER" a bit better.

Hi Stephanie. Love your soul music especially the three moons because this picture needs more than one. My family is from NW Georgia. I know I've been through your neck of the woods many times. Thanks for sharing. Terri
