What some might dismiss as messy strands of hair have body, luster, curvature in their darkness. Darkness is the true mirror of light. The tilted head with its bright features might seem an afterthought; face is central to the whole yet its precise, simple definition seems too facile. It would be a mistake to discredit the artist. A talent that can make the most out of the least is literally most creative. But we should focus on the beauty of the subject. There is literally nothing elaborate about her. Her beauty emerges from the simple curves of the face shaping lips, nose and eyes that are above all engaged.
