Thanks Steve. I will do some figuring in between what I hope is her view of herself, and my artistic interpretation of that.
Ultimately I believe that is the balance you're looking for, a little of what she sees and a little of how you see it.

I'm looking forward to seeing more! S-

An experiment turned to success !!! It's not unusual for anyone to portray themselves different from what is in a photo of ones self vs what was portrayed from the photographer. Some folks dislike seeing a picture of themselves, for whatever reason, maybe they don't value their appearance as others do. We all have favorites of ourselves, smiles, smirks or frowns. Her expression shows a sign of sadness, but we don't know that to be the case. It could just be coincidental, while in deep thought and I sense that based on the environmental characteristics of the original. I may be way off base, but that's my speculation. Having said that, I think you did quiet well with what was handed to you.Yes, there are flaws, but we all know it's not a perfect world. I wouldn't change a thing. A job well done in my book. I would think she would be quite happy with your version of herself Minnie !!!

Thank you Dave. I saw the sadness too, and it's what gave me the desire to do something with it. Because my husband works for the tribe we have many Native American friends and acquaintances. I have found there to what I'd call cultural sadness embedded in many, something that shows mainly in the eyes. I thought she was quite beautiful, and wanted to show her beauty and that little tinge of half hidden sadness. She's a quiet but personable woman.
