WOW....do you ever get headaches??????? This is so stunning, and flabergasting (if that's even a word) :) Most Excellent!!!!!!!

Artist Reply: Hi Rita. This one has 62 hours work in the drawing and I didn't work more than an hour at a time on it. I try to get up from my drawing table at least on the hour so I don't get eye strain or "set-itus" if that makes sense LOL. Thank you!
