Re-using this image. I guess I'm re-enforcing the idea that a varied background doesn't work for an image that you want to come through undistorted, like your fiancee's face. The darker areas distort her face a bit and make this more of an abstraction than is necessary. I love the graphic-ness of this image and that one wisp of hair seals it. I am learning a lot in my painting days here. The funny thing is that I never really thought I would be a painter, but it really does seem to fit the more I try it out.
