You caught such a pretty moment; you're good at captured moments.

Yes, great brushstrokes.

Hi Celeste,
sure you are not French?. This looks straight out of the 1900 Impressionist period. Great!

When I look at the colors you used in the torso and head, I do not think Degas, I think Matisse. Matisse-y. Love that creative color, and the brush strokes in the dress.
