Beautifully done. I want to hug her.

Fantastic, I don't think your art will see much rejection. Realistic illustration sometimes seems bland or distant but yours is filled with great emotion, not to mention talent and technique.

Thanks for stopping by my blog Jennifer. You've got some great work here. It sounds like you had a wonderful trip to NYC. In talking to Wade, it's amazing how much you all were able to see and do. Keep up the great work.
