First of all, I would like to say you deserve the the "Gold" stamp for this and a few others in your gallery! I adore the focus on the detailed realism of this painting!! I also LOVE the dramatic contrast in the hues too...the way the painting has the feel of direct low sunlight is breathtaking and beautiful!!! This is nothing short of perfect and beautiful!!!!! You really did a beautiful job and I love it!! :o) #3828795

You did such an awesome job with this girlie. I am supposed to be working on my taxes today but feel like painting instead. I love the way you painted the highlights into the braids. They really look three dimensional. You are a true artist. #3830195
