She was actually diagnosed after I had this done...   I’m calling the second colorway “Love” as it represents my support of the American Heart Association and especially, Women's Heart issues.  Working with red is always a challenge as it doesn’t shade well but I’m happy with the way this turned out.  When I photographed the two,   I was espe
