Thanks! I think it does as well. I didn't even notice they repainted the background until I looked at this photo haha.

That's funny... I didn't even know it was a painting....I thought that everything worked together to look like a painting, very impressive.

I really like the way that she is looking directly at you and the background gives the image a interesting look.

Great shot :) I like that you've faded the busy background so it compliments the subject instead of taking away from her.
