Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale
Her infinite variety
.
William Shakespeare, “Antony and Cleopatra”

This is my Phenomenal Woman inspired by Maya Angelou’s poem by the same name, (see below), in this her third guise…she has been though a lot, but it has not made her any less beautiful, any less phenomenal in her life…she takes care of herself, her family and friends, and at the end she can say "I did my best"

    Oh, she IS phenomenal! Her eyes are so full of emotion and maturity – reminds me of a gentle deer somehow. Lovely Janis! great idea to rework her – she is more evolved in this one:-)

  • Different ways of interpreting the same subject always intrigues me…it’s all different media as well, which is really fun to explore…witness the many ways I did Jasmine with still more waiting in the wings…thanks so much Leslie…glad you like her..

    Excellent work Janis, well done.

    You really ought to do a self portrait sometime.

  • That may not ever come true David as I almost never have pictures taken of myself…the one in my avatar is almost the only one that exists…possible one or two more somewhere, but that’s it…thanks so much for all your support…
