    This is one of the most beautiful portraits you have ever done, to my eyes, Sam. What a beautiful face— even through the weariness, she is a gorgeous and strong woman. I love the graceful folds of the green cloth on her head. Simplifying the checkered table cloth to an envelope of clouds was brilliant, because you have immediately, artistically, and symbolically lightened her load. Beautiful work! Congratulations, Samantha!

  • Thank you so much Frannie.
