I like the excentricity of your portrait ! the combination of mixed media and quilting technique is great ! reminds me of a famous painting, a portrait composed of various fruit. Do you see what I mean ? It gives an impression of abondance. It's nice to go off tracks !

It is really special Maria. It is much more interesting to look at than if it was just the portrait!

I LOVE this, Maria. The layers add so much lovely complexity, and the stitching on the top layer helps pull your eye around the piece.

I absolutely love this piece.  The transparency and the realistic look into her eyes are phenomenal.
