So very beautiful!
A powerful sense of penetrating hesitation from this wonderful portrait Elena.
Thanks so much, Patti.
She seems to be staring of into the distance wondering about what is going to happen with her life.
The bane of intelligence;)
Elena, your color palette is so glorious. I love her hair and the color of her blouse against her soft skin tones. The texturing around her face is the perfect compliment . Beautiful!
Thanks so very much, Marian. I’m glad you like her:)!
Wow. Such a great portrait Elena..she knows her own mind, I think, a very strong character comes out here, with a hint of that hestitation we all feel! The light is captured so beautifully.
Well intuited! Thank you, Cath:)

I love the strength in that gaze. She is gorgeous! I think of these portraits as a collaboration in a way, there is real communication happening.

The subject is so beautiful, but it’s how you capture light that makes it so alive. Magic, Elena!

Thank you Chris. That’s the magic of linen.
A truly beautiful portrait. So alive!
Many thanks, KC!
Thanks ever so much, Drake!
A very beautiful portrait. The eyes and the hair are magical, and the features are enhanced by the soft, somewhat high key, background.
Many thanks, Louis.
“The eyes shout what the lips fear to say.” Well done , Elena!

Great painting dear Elena, your art always fascinates me. Thank you, love, nia
Thanks so much, Nia!
You are an amazing talent. She’s beautiful!
Very much appreciated, Linda!
Wow. I just watched the movie “Picnic at Hanging Rock”, this reminds me of the character Miranda and the line from the script, “I know now that Miranda is a Botticelli angel.” Your portrait evokes that same wonder.
Thanks so much, Scilla not only for the lovely comment but for introducing me to “Picnic at Hanging Rock”! I Googled images and found the character. And yes, she does resemble G. I think both G and I will have to see the film!
It’s a very odd film; allegorical almost. The image of women broken into types, and very mysterious, shrouded in ignorance. Lots to think about, anyway.
Sounds interesting. Thanks much!
Beautiful… I love the expression in those eyes.
Thanks so much!
Wow! Just, WOW!
So very kind of you, John. Thank you very much!
Thanks much, Juli!
