She's gorgeous, Ron! A truly painterly vision with a wonderful contrasting background and lovely textures throughout. Such a joy seeing the female featured as well. ;). Superb!

Thank you, Cindy. I have always thought the red, grey and brown tones on female make her just as beautiful, if not more so, than the all red male. So your observation is spot on. :)
