French Girl w Magazine

My computer hard drive was recovered and all files still intact. I truly love those guys at MAc Clinic. They saved me from losing all that work for 5 years. I am so happy that I can be back on Etsy and also to have those photographs back! hooray... I went out and got a lottery ticket for tonite and its a quick pick and the first two numbers were 7 15, does that mean anything as that is today's date? I will let you know tomorrow.

This is from a photograph from a glass negative that my friend in France sent me a few weeks ago. I just loved the composition of the girl sitting on a table reading her magazine with the window light coming in. Of course the challenge was in the color as this was a black and white and I had to invent the color. I am old hat there as I have been adding color over black and white photographs for years and this proved to be a challenge but not one I couldn't overcome. So here she is.

Very Good Marianne, I think you should pursue that style of painting more. Love the composition and the colors too.Is there anything you can`t do? Gramma Joan

Oh, Thank God, Marianne! So glad for you! I know everyone must have been praying/sending good wishes to you! It was weird; when I clicked on etsy for 1st time in a week I didn't see the latest post re: your recovering the info. The first thing that came up was the scone pic. etc. and so I wrote to you right away; now I see all is ok! SO GLAD! Love you!
