    I love her hair and the hint of her background in a desolate place. With the left side undone, it’s like she’s part and parcel to her environment now, emerging from it only as a ghost of her self.

    Excellent interpretation of this beautiful photograph, Sam. Congratulations!!

  • Thank you so much Frannie and thank you again for you support and encouragement.

    Amazingly soulful translation of a deeply amazing portrait from an absolutely amazing artist.
    In fact seeing this, I think you`re kind of amazing yerself :-)
    I agree with Frannie about the background through the undone hair. It`s bold and it does justice to the expression which you captured passionately.
    This is wondeful work !!

  • Thank you so much BillyBoy. I really appreciate your lovely comments.
