Patti, thanks … once again a great topic/subject from you, girls.

A silhouette is the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, with its edges matching the outline of the subject. (wikipedia)

“There are not many original shapes or silhouettes
— only a million variations.”
Charles James
