  1. These portraits are beyond amazing Wilma! How clever to place a hummer in her hairdo. I love her celestial blouse, the planets perfectly look like buttons. It’s really cool investigating the close ups, I’m blown away by her smile. Did you have that little bit of map with Tonga in your art before the volcano blew ?! 💗🥰

    • Hi Kelly
      Thanks so much for encouraging my quirky ways…at first her shoulders were bare but then I decided she needed heavenly clothing, I am glad you like it! Her smile is why I chose her…so much fun to do. Tonga is definitely hidden there, good spotting…it was pre-eruption…how was I to know?
      À plus tard mon oiseau mouche.
