ecco femina

This is the winning painting of the BP portrait award this year. It makes me flinch, but if there were more such around I think we would all have a more realistic and happy idea of what people look like .  She has a lovely face and is agreeing with me I think.
I didn't do Latin.  We had to chose between Art and Latin at my school, probably wise choice in my case as I am hopeless at languages, so do correct me if you wish.

I flinched too. The face alone would have been lovely. The rest - unnecessary IMO.

If we saw more of our real selves, perhaps we wouldn't judge ourselves do harshly.
