This is a beautiful portrait, Michelle. The light is wonderful and the stylized profiles are very effective--they almost look like those smooth African soapstone carvings I like so much. Love the diagonal created by their positions.

Thank you ever so much Nikki!
This was one of her favorites too. :)
She said it really made her see how much her son looked like her & her husband. #4329828
