And you doubted yourself??? Really??? Your portraits are superbly done and the most outstanding element is always the eyes. A well deserved award.

Thank you, I really appreciate all your kind words. What is "funny" is that at the last minute, I decided to enter this one into the show...I had two others entered already and I finished framing it a day before the deadline. :-)
