Beautiful colors, especially on the head wrap! Also love the background quilting.

Thanks, I couldn't decide between red, orange, purple, blue, etc., so I made it look like a silk scarf.

Thanks, this was fun to do. The background looks like lace and flowers, kind of yellow, made sure one of the flowers landed on her cheek.

The coloring is off the chain. Wonderful....just wonderful. You should be proud because you did a wonderful job. You too now have your own picasso.

Yes I agree with all, this is fabulous. I was recently made aware of this masterpiece and you really did it justice.
