Thank you for that link Hannah, I look forward to investigating her art this afternoon. I don't want to say too much yet because I like to spend quite a bit of time taking in new work before really thinking about how it hits me.I'm really very pleased you like this image. I was a bit concerned that it would seem far too different in tone or approach and be more jarring than powerful. Your comment made my day.
