Today's Painting: Ovis Nectarus

Third pass. I started adding the nectar at the eye ducts and need to decide just where it is going to come from.....nose, too, probablt and then it is on the deciding on a design for the butterflies. I initially thought of using bees, but I think the butterflies will create the edge I am looking for without too much weird factor. Yes, there is a line. Even for me.
For those of you who have asked "ovis" is the latin name for sheep. "Ovis" is the genus of the eight species of this mammal. The Peruvian word for sheep is "llama." "Ovis Nectarus", sheep of nectar, sounds better than "Llama Nectarus."
