"Magic" – Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "My Heart Is Blue For You."

I wanted to create a piece showing a man suffering from unrequited love, thus the reason why his heart is blue (figuratively, not literally). I found some images, but then one thing led to another with my muse, and some magical creatures crept into my piece. Then I thought of the song "You Can Do Magic" by America, and the words fit my piece, so I added them to it.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.10.

The vintage images are from a DuckDuckGo search.

The fonts are:
