Red face Save the Art

Well... since I couldn't find an appropriate thread to post this in (search sucks)... Anyway, I created this for our school's art booster club's Facebook page, and thought it might be worthy of critique here. It's simple, I know - just made on MS Paint.

Thanks

lol maybe I should mention that I got the Mona Lisa online, and then used Paint to "enhance" it with the text

Sure, but how can you make that brush texture with a simple program like paint?

The new version of Paint for Windows 7 have different brush textures built-in. You can do "oil" paint, "watercolor" paint, colored pencil, crayon, spray-can, marker, and maybe a few others. It's a huge improvement over the XP version, although I don't know what was in with Vista.

Microsoft updated Paint for the first time in 10 Years? Fascinating.

After getting some criticism on the first one, I played with it and got this. I'm trying to push the limits of Paint (which aren't too hard to reach), so I might need to go shopping for a good painting application.
