    I recognize you now from your last portrait. The eyes here are not only beautiful, but full of emotion, sensitive, and contemplative. Here the subject is part of her surroundings, as if she sees herself inextricably tied to them; yet hoping for an escape or to reach out for more.

    It’s been such a pleasure seeing your journey in painting, Elena. I love how it’s now come around to these self portraits.

    Amazingly expressive to the point of philosophical perspective. Beyond this, is hard to descibe in words. Superb portrait!
