  1. It seems an animation, more than a steady image. Marvellous!

  2. Everything about it is beautiful.The loving smile on the mother's face, the daughter's coy glance, the tender way the mother is a holding her daughter. A remarkable piece of art.

  3. Self-portraits are always fascinating to me. This is a lovely painting. Thanks for introducing me to this amazing artist.
