Today’s treat was the picture shown in the 2nd image above. I was blown away. What detail. Looks like a photograph. So realistic. What talent. What patience. What dedication.

I shared the Facebook post on my Facebook timeline and I was amazed by the folks that reacted and responded. She definitely gets attention and admiration.
