"Hunting" for Good Tidings and finding only more Bad News? Such Beauty and Sadness in this Portrait. It is Wonderful. Have you considered portraying the "Little Match Girl"? Beware; Her story may well Haunt you Forever... R.K.
i really like the colours of this picture, and the caring and focused look on her face. Her right arm looks a bit small, but overall it looks like there's some interesting story behind the character- was there one, or did you just feel like painting this? it's really lovely.
