Lady in an Onsen

Onsen is the Japanese word for a type of vacation hot-springs; people get nude and bathe in hot relaxing water with some healing properties. (Usually it's gender segregated so don't get any unclean thoughts, unless you swing that way!) This is from an old 1904 Japanese postcard. I saw the water movement and the simple use of colour and I couldn't let it waste itself on the history shelf. I hope someone can use this beautiful image, maybe it can even become a postcard again--- that'd be great! (Incidentally, I had to recreate the lower left side because it was destroyed by the stamp and cancellation marks... I hope it works!)

terrybain, interesting remix. Personally I think it needs the background for a bit of a cohesive feeling, but I see what you were trying to do. Thanks for the positive words :)
