Q: has anyone bought the leash and cuff quick connect straps wondering how they work in real life

A: Do you know?

I have been thinking how I can achieve this SP. I tried several things that did not work out. I ended up doing it in a tight space and a lot of manipulating of me and the camera. It is done in the natural light in the room which I was happy to discover that it makes it look like I am getting some of the sunset light on me from the painting. This is one of my favorite paintings that I did and I have repeated it on a vase once which came out really well. Oh, I am holding my daily allotment of good for your heart dark chocolate - with almonds - even healthier - LOL : )

After this photo was posted for a day in the 1/365 theme, I put it in the theme of Paradise. A paradise to me is to be able to finish a painting and to love it and then to join it with my other hobbies that I love, photography and the computer.

    Back to vote and it is interesting to read the well deserved response you got on this very lovely portrait with your beautiful painting.including what I wrote about visiting my mother for a week when you posted this...Wow! So much has happened since then including my mother dying
    two years later in October...Life can change so quickly but it is the memories that we record
    in photography that keep those moments alive to remember. You definitely have my vote!!!
