Sorry for the delayed reply!! Thank you so much Emona!

What a brave woman you are, Tali! How many of us can truthfully acknowledge and accept how we actually look. In this portrait, I see a strikingly beautiful woman with strong features - I see determination, a strong will, compassion, and a soft gentleness. Your narrative shows that you not only accept who you are, but also that you proud of who you are, and proud of what you have become in life. Your painting skills are truly amazing and this self portrait is proof of that. I hope your next self portrait will show more of your beautiful blue eyes! Outstanding work!
