Judy- Good evening my friend. What a sunny, beautiful, image of this charming lady. I love the look of her expression, the pose, her perkiness, and the freckles. The picture is so sunny and bright, just makes you feel summery. The green backgound is excellent for a backdrop. Compositon outstanding. The hat is like a big bonus for the look of the picture. Even the pok-a-dot strap around her neck add to the charm of the picture.
Sensational colors, textures, skin tones. The clarity is marvelous.
Beautiful and charming work
Have a most wonderful night, a fabulous tomorrow, take care, enjoy #6255939
