Behind the Music

Monika Sapek level-classic December 13, 2003

Nice portrait, Edward. I like how the girl is looking at me from behind violin. I was thinking about taking a similar portrait of my daughter, but I found it hard to do so. She’s wants to play more than pose for the photos ;-).
You did a nice job on this one.

Roseann E. Dreasher December 13, 2003

Great portrait!!! I love how she doesn't show much emotion which doesn't distract from the violin...both are equally appealing! : ) #293931

Edward Siegel December 13, 2003

Thank you very much for the great comments. She is my daughter and she is my 'in house' model. You'd never know from the photo that she was constantly many more are you going to take?

Thanks again
