Another look at my Yren
This is a very special picture of Yren--my very first look at her! Marina sent it to me Friday morning. The wig makes a great deal of difference, doesn't it?
This was taken at about 3 am, Vancouver time--poor Marina was pulling an all-nighter to make another obsessed fan happy--and so the light wasn't the best, but nothing can discourage beauty like that. She looks very painterly to me... Like she needs a "girl with a pearl earring" earring, or an ermine to hold.
At first I was very startled by the picture, because I was expecting different coloring. It took me a few days to get used to this look. But now I love her, absolutely and totally love her, and this is the way I would have requested her to be, if I could have seen into the future.
The original picture was three-quarter length, so I could see more of her body, including the lovely emerald ring she wears on her right hand. I will show that sometime too, but for now I wanted to figure out how to make her picture into an oval--using only Word and Paint! Hee hee, it was a challenge, but there she is.
My girl, my Yren.
