Just beautiful, Edward. Great color contrasts, and I really feel that I can sense her persona. This is one of those paintings that would look great on anyone's wall...it has beauty and intrigue. Love it.

I hate to be redundant, but my first thought when I saw your magnificent painting was "stunning". This is so beautifully painted, and a joy to look at!
This is beautifully painted, Edward. But then, I wouldn't expect anything less from you. You continue to amaze and delight!
OMG Edward. Such a stunning portrait done in classic style. One of the best out of a field of fabulous portraits.
Edward, I love your portrait of Akiko.
Breathtaking, absolutely beautiful...so glad you were selected to paint this photo!
She look so stunning , great work , Edward
Oh how coincidental - I know (another)Akiko -I wonder if it's a pretty common Japanese name. The painting of Akiko is wonderfully cuaght!
This is beautiful, Edward!
Simply beautiful!!! What a lovely portrait.
Wow...it's breath-taking, Edward! What a beautiful, cherished portrait. Love seeing Akiko dressed up in her kimono, too.
I feel truly speechless. I stared at that in awe for a good 5 minutes... no words for the mastery. It is the most beautiful portrait I think I have ever seen, rivals the best Sargents. I think I need to do the deep to-the-floor bow to you, Edward.
WOW what a portrait! A tuff challenge and you did a great job Edward.
Wow- simply gorgeous, especially the kimono detail!
This is beautiful, and I bet it was a delight to approach this reference. Just gorgeous.
Wow! Edward, I'm speechless. You have done such a great job. I submitted this old picture of mine in Kimono because it is very special to me. You made it even more special. I cannot thank you enough. You really made my day!! Thank you so much. :-)
Absolutely gorgeous, Edward. Akiko and your painting of her--breathtaking!
Absolutely wonderful portrait.
Outstanding, perfect in every detail!
Wow! It's wonderful to see two blogger friends' portraits of each other, and you did such an elegant painting of Akiko! I love seeing her in this gorgeous kimono!!

Hey Edward - what they said! Really I bet you enjoyed painting this. It's a lovely piece.
Ed, you really pulled off another great one here. Akiko looks resplendent in her traditional garb, and you captured it perfectly.
Wonderful! Beautifully painted Edward!
Ed, this is nothing short of PHENOMENAL. And Akiko's return portrait of you makes this pairing of artists for the DSFDF Challenge the absolute tops. I am so taken away by both of you that I blurbed and linked you on my blog as something that needs to be seen and appreciated. Have a joyous Christmas and drop by for some holiday cheer.
Great job one of the best Happy Holidays.
This is a very striking portrait. Good job!
What more is there to say, you both did a masterful job! I love the color and how contemporary the portrait feels, while still respecting the traditional. Magnificent!
Really amazing Edward. You captured her expression so well. Just charming!
WOOHOO another show stopper Edward! You also have a lovely partner congrats to both! And Happy New Year!

You are an amazing artist. She is beautiful. Such talent.
Whoa! Edward! Amazing! I'm *almost* speechless! love it, love it, love it!
Simply Amazing! WOW!
Sorry I'm so late in commenting on this OUTSTANDING portrait of Akiko. You most definitely captured her serenity and quiet beauty. You probably had the most challenging assignment but you sailed through itlike a hot knife in butter. I'm honored to know such a gifted artist. All the best to you and Kim in 2010 my friend!
Beautiful work, Edward!
It's beautiful, I wish I could put down brushstrokes like that!
