    Oh wow, Sally….this is fantastic…great work! I love how you took the b/w photo & added the subtle color, yet maintained that old look. The folds in the dress are perfect, good body proportions….all over wow!

  • I so wanted this to turn out well enough for a gift for Kay and I feel pretty satisfied (face is so difficult). I certainly appreciate your support and fave, Marsha. Thanks!
