Portrait

Gabriella is a great friend of ours. Strong in her convictions and strict in her scale of values.
(I have preferred to portray her as the old Dutch masters might have seen her)

Such a beautiful portrait. Strong, yes, but I see a little sparkle of humor in her eyes, too.

What a lovely tribute to your friend. HEr portrait is beautiful and you seem to have captured her spirit!

I'm sorry you probably didn't get to hear Michael's wonderful Nocturne. I have to change the tune before I go to bed each night for the next day. I will play another one day soon. (That piece was perfect for the fountains)

She looks strong and strict in the photo. And as Laurie says, I think she's got a sense of humor, too.

She looks like she's trying very hard not to laugh. Beautiful portrait of a beautiful and strong woman.

I think she must be a very good friend to allow you to photograph her so specifically. I find that as I photograph more and more people I try my very best to put them in the best light, literally and figuratively. Beautiful work.
