TAW..Cool Colours..

The challenge this week on Take a word is Cool Colours.
Surfing through Google as is my wont, I came across this picture,
 black and white, of this beauty wearing this extraordinary hat or headdress.
I found her fascinating so I've coloured her in cool colours.
And here she is. When I was a little girl my dearest Grandfather would come
out with all these sayings, one of them was 'If you can't fight,
wear a big hat!' I've never known what it meant but if ever I see anyone
in a big hat, it always comes into my mind!
Thanks for your visit. I'm meeting my sister today for lunch
so I'll catch up later.
Big Hugs

Sim said...

She is gorgeous and her hat is amazing!
Good work at colorizing June! Bravo!
(I think that I understand your grandfather's mind; for me, it means that if you have the courage of wearing a big hat, it gives you the feeling of beeing courageous for anything else...)
