Very nice. I really love how her skin has a slight texture to it. And it's more striking cuz it's a black and white portrait.

I thought I was the only one of my generation how has the hot for Lena.
My favorite cuts by her (most of then you can lime - some you can't - too rare)

You Go To My Head (rare - hard to find)
God Bless The Child
Frankie And Johnny
Just Squeeze Me (But Don't Tease Me)
Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child

She also had mad nice cuts with Harry Belafonte
To all you who are not familiar with Lena - You need to do your home work. She paved the way for your favorite artist today like Beyonce and others.
Good Work McGee! - The values are on point.
I would just say what ever it is on the top left of her head does't read clearly- It could be a flower or baret - I don't know -
Anyhow you know it's tight or you wouldn't have posted it.

Thanks y'all I appreciate the love. Yeah, Lena is/was a beautiful lady. Anybody seen the WIZ where she played the good witch? She sings a ballad at the end to Dorothy which gives me goosebumps til this day! Anyway I'm going to try to send her a print.
