The influence in this photograph (from my part, at least), was the portraiture of the Spanish painter "Goya". The dress, pose, placement of the hands, rose, color palette, all give the feel of a beautiful painting. Add into the final portrait the mounting on canvas and an incredible hand made leafed frame, and we have what I believe to be a "masterpiece".
This is our last High School Senior from the class of 2009.
Thanks to Cristina and her family for their patronage and confidence through the years! (and I hope her dad loved his Father's Day gift).
