There is so much to like about this art work that it is hard to begin.

Outstanding work Millieanne. Perfect treatment to accentuate the classic look of the model. You have skillfully combined the individual elements to create a well balanced, intriguing look.

Well done. #1291299

Joannie Bertucci level-classic July 24, 2010

I agree with Irene, wonderful work-up! An excellent piece of advertising! At first I thought she was a young Lucille Ball! :-) #8783996

Thank's everyone for approving my final edit. I think sometimes, what I like, as far as creativity, isn't shared by everyone. That's okay, though, there will always be those who can enjoy and complement! Thank you Irene, Joannie, Nancy for awesome comments. #8784086

This really is a beautiful piece of art. I thought it was Lucille Ball too!!! The model's facial expression, makeup and hat are all fantastic. Your treatment makes it so whimsical and fun. You have a very creative imagination. #9044455

Laura E. Swan level-classic November 27, 2010

This is so pretty! I love the placement of the flowers here, too. Her eyes are not disturbed, (The focal point!), and I also appreciate seeing half of her pretty lips. We can imagine the other half, which makes it more interesting for the viewer. Same with her eye brows. We still know their shape even if we cant see all of them both. This is so well done. A lot more could be said here but these are just my favorite points.

Bravo Millieanne!
