Une très belle rousse... J'aimerais tant que ma fille Fauve conserve la couleur fauve de ses cheveux au lieu de les masquer sous de fausses couleurs!
Un très joli portrait rempli de douceur. J'aime ce merveilleux contraste de sa chevelure avec ce beau vert.
Effectivement vous pouvez être fière de cette peinture.

Merci pour votre très gentil commentaire. Vous seriez la bienvenue ici en France dans ma maison...

Gros bisous.

A beautiful redhead ... I want as my daughter Fawn retains the yellow color of her hair instead of hiding them under false colors!
A very nice portrait full of sweetness. I love the wonderful contrast of her hair with this beautiful green.
Actually you can be proud of this painting.

Thank you for your very nice comment. You would be welcome in France here in my house ...

Big hugs.

(Thanks, Martine)

The intersection of red and green is always an act of beauty.

She is so beautiful. And she reminds me of Rita Hayworth. Excellent portrait, Celeste!

Really fantastic, Celeste. I find it amazing how you achieve a good likeness. Whenever I've tried I age the subject by 20+.

At least with my subject matter nobody knows how inaccurate I am .. but me.

Wonderful really like this one.
