  1. oh yes this is stunningly gorgeous and i love that you provided some information about her! the beautiful one has indeed arrived, right in your creation. xo

  2. A stunning page, she was a beauty and a powerful woman of her times.

  3. I need to say thank you! I did an incredibly similar piece for a Cleopatra challenge, confusing the two ladies. Here I sit with egg on my face!

    1. Bev, they are so easy to confuse! I only know the difference because I have named my cats after Cleopatra (Chleo for short) and Nefertiti (Neffie for short). No egg on face!

  4. This is gorgeous like Bev's the perfect combination of subject and background...well done.

  5. I LOVE this, the dramatic colours and the beautiful blending are absolutely wonderful.


Thank you so much for taking the time to put a little air under my wings. I so appreciate your observations, comments and praise. Hugs!
