    I wish I had the critics vocabulary and memory for images. In a parallel universe this is already an iconic image, one which celebrates decency and hope and strength. Looking at this lovely strong woman, I come away with a sense of knowing something about her. Absolutely wonderful work Karen.

  • Well Kevin it seems I’ve totally capture her then, she is truly the celebration of decency, hope and strength. Thanks so much for the wonderful comment my friend:))) xxoo
