Anita, I love your portrait. It's both energized and introspective, two most important characteristics of a true artist. Nice work!

Fantastic, and I love the background, but I agree with Anon :-) the portrait is a little sterner than I imagine you to be.

Having seen your recent photos, I know you have captured your features although your photo showed you a bit softer. But that's okay - when you're staring at yourself in a mirror, trying to draw, you might be less soft than when you're captured thinking of something else.
