Shoshana animated gifI have created this animated gif, superimposing the painting more and more densely on a photo from which I am working to see what the differences are. Atthe turning point of the animated gif, there is a whiter line drawing which I did as a transparent layer over the photo to show the differences. This seems to indicate that the difficulties are, not the eyes, which the mother has thought, but (1) a deviation in the jaw and more of a smile than in the picture, (2) greater breadth to the shoulders than in the photo, and (3), nose and mouth slightly higher. I have put this on the web because the animation takes a while to download on a 56K modem and, since the gif file is over 1 MB, I didn't want to try sending by email. I want to call to the mother's attention that there is another photo I have of this girl in which she is smiling more and has (at least apparently) less jaw. I will want confirmation before I change the picture.
