justjean, I also have prisms in my glasses, and when I look this painting without them, I can see how rounded the forms are and how they cohere in light and color even as the edges disappear ...

Excellent work Jean! I'd rather see original Art however.

ChinaPete, thanks :) but if I didn't use my glasses (they help curtail my double vision) she would have another head growing
out of her original one :D

Damas, thank you for looking in and commenting :)

shadowslake, thanks for your nice comments :)

Jibes, thanks , about the only thing I try painting from my imagination is landscapes but will try harder :D

It's a wonderful Pino's lady, but with a much softer and dreamy look, thus You succeeded to get an original and very personal interpretation and a marvellous artpiece.

Wonderful!! One of your best, I love it.
Great work Jean:):)

So you got some new eye workings. Wonderful that must be! What a miracle time for artists, eh?

I very much love the sensuality of this. Yours is more delicate than Pino's. You are less contrasty, which gives it a different flavor, albeit a valid one. He pushed the darks harder, which is something he learned from his days painting Romance paperback covers, being to make it where it could compete against all the other paperback covers screaming for attention on the racks. Color and contrast, not to mention beauty.

You have all the beauty with a softer allure. She's very accessible and her back says she is very smooth and equipped with gentle feminine grace and mystery, as if one would have to reach in deeply to get her attention. She's waiting to be invited to turn toward the viewer but not immediately. Lost in her thoughts and feelings perhaps. Reflective. There's a story here in yours as well as in Pino's. I think yours is looking inside deeper than Pino's, psychologically speaking, owing to your interpretation and how you handled the visual information.

I especially love the hair. Your variety of marks and color makes it very intriguing because it's not overly explained. But it reads great.

Splendid job! Funny, now that you have new "eye wear", you have gone softer focus. As such, I know that was a conscious choice, not cause you were having some difficulty seeing, hahaha.

ah Mr DA your words are always so interesting, thank you , as for seeing better it has it's down side too, now I can see all the dust and debris I have missed in my housekeeping :D
Thank you Sandy, I'm happy you like it :D
