Janis Joplin - Think Monday - Think ATC

Janis Joplin is my favorite Rock Star and Rock star is the theme over on Think Monday - Think ATC. I found this image of Janis online and then I altered her to a watercolor special effect on a photo editing program. Then I printed her out and hand watercolored her.
