Mix it Monthly - theme maps

This is done in watercolors in my art journal which is my favorite way to paint. Her hair is a map of Greenville, SC which is very near where we live. Greenville has a bike trail which is called the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Part of it is on old railroad lines. It goes a long way through the city and it seems that all near by cities are getting on board and making their trails to connect with the Swamp Rabbit Trail. Greenville has been named a top 10 city to bike in. The Swamp Rabbit Trail is very big here and this girl is looking forward to a ride on the trail.
