Amazing work, Mona!

Mona, this is fantastic! I'm not sure if I'm looking at her, or she's looking at me! I love the gold space around the eye. It complements the color of the eye and skin tone.

Wow! This is stunning, Mona! Her eye is alive. I just can't get my eye off this beautiful brooch. Awesome work!!

Thanks, I'm still working on adding my initials to this one (because it's so tiny), and it is one of my submissions for a show at The Elder Gallery in Houston, Texas.

Hello! Your space is beautiful. I would be better to put a translator.
