Ester the 2/30 in the painting challenge  over at the Slices of Life  This one her face started to shape and form so I went with it but would have like to add more character

The Old Testament tells us that Esther‘s original (Jewish) name was Hadasah. It was changed to Esther in order to fool the Persian king Antiochus (so he wouldnt know she’s Jewish). That is how we know Esther is an authentic Persian-originated name.
