  1. Love that ‘War’—as if I could see the tugs, feel the exuberance, even hear the laughter!

    (PS: It’s been a while, I hope you’re doing just fine)

  2. Oh Elena, I don´t know why your blog keeps disappearing from my Reader… Nice to see your new work and evolution. The red scarf captivates with its gaze and the upper one reminds me the whites used in Sorolla´s beautiful beach paintings. Great!

  3. You’ve captured the girls’ movement and the combination of strength and delicacy. The portrait is lovely, too. The sideways glance is arresting–perhaps she has a secret?

    1. Thank you, Robin! I’ve just been to your excellent blog, and I have to tell you, I have a hard time just keeping up with your fabulous posts, never mind the energy it takes you to make them happen! YOU are amazing!

  4. The top one – three girls have a half-serious tug o’ war over a confirmation dress – brilliant movement in what could be an Edvard Munch setting. The bottom one reminds me of Whistler’s portraits of ‘le petit cardinal’ – in fact there is a touch of Whistler about your work, mainly about your use of shadow. Just a touch.
