This is a fabulous portrait...it does remind me of the light from a miners lamp, especially with the pitch black behind her. Maybe that is why she looks unhappy? You are going to have such a glorious collection by the end of this year :D XXX
Love the shading, the flowered envelope and the mysterious story.
The shadowing in the portrait is beautiful, and adds to a sense of mystery about the subject and her story.
This is really a different look from other things you do. Stay cool, Mary
Serious and slightly sad looking lady this week, beautifully painted as always.Jen x
Wow! This one certainly does jump out at you when you first open the page!! It's definitely different but you have done her just perfect! My goodness....I have no idea how you can just pick up on so many different styles so quickly! You are so amazing! Think I've said that a time or 2 but it's just true as you go on further and further!!
