    interesting translation from the dark to the brightness… with the same intensity but perhaps with a greater rigidity in contrast with the softness of the light…
    Carpe diem…

  • thank you Antonello for letting me use your lovely photograph

    Wonderful work, Sam, and very personal interpretation of Antonello’s intriguing image, turning the tables on the mood. It’s almost as if she has arrived on the other side of “loneliness” and is resolved to forge into a new beginning. Love the outcome and the journey. Congratulations!

  • Thanks Frannie for all your support, much appreciated.
