Girl of the Limberlost

One of my favorite books is A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton-Porter. I read it so long ago that I can't remember if that book is what inspired my fascination with moths or if it merely spoke to it, but in any case, it is a well-beloved book to me. So, in an effort to explore the photo editing program Gimp, I created this collage, and found out that Gimp is wonderful! It's free, and very powerful, and decently easy to use.

  1. I love Girl of the Limberlost!! :) Your rendition is beautiful, although I usually envision her as a Gibson Girl era-type. The Harvester by Gene Stratton-Porter is my favorite novel by this author but the Girl of the Limberlost, my second.

    Love your moths!!!

  2. I envision her as more of a Gibson Girl type, but this was what the muse gave me. :D
