Oh! 
I just came from your portrait of student-disguised Éponine, and I am just amazed at your entire gallery! 
I love the warm colors of this portrait (contrasting the cold, miserable life we see her having right before her death), and how Fantine looks to the Lord, doubting the forgiveness of the world (like in the lyric you quoted in the description).
A work of wonder, something to be envied. 
La la la la

Much appreciated! Thank you so much for the thoughtful comment. This panting is from long enough ago that I haven't thought about it much recently. But the bright colors to contrast with the bleakness of her life and death was definitely something I had in mind when I painting this. :D

It's a pity we didn't see more of Anne's character. She really hit it out of the ballpark.

That's true. I guess that's the weird thing about Fantine's role. She's a powerful and memorable character but isn't on screen/stage for very long. Which is interesting since her influence and the effects of her decisions and actions are felt long after she's passed on. :)

My dad said Anne's version of "I Dreamed a Dream" is the most beautiful one he's ever heard.

I said it took real talent to sing and cry at the same time. He added, "And be convincing."

I'd certainly recommend it. It's a bit to sit thought, especially if you're not familiar with it yet, but I think it's worth it.

So it's like "Lord of the Rings," huh? Kind of lengthy, but definitely worth it?

I'd say that's a fair comparison in terms of runtime vs. payoff.

[Mild Les Mis movie spoilers warning for this comment]

Hmm. A lot of them, really, and for different reasons. I guess what comes to mind first is the opening sequence where Valjean and the other convicts are hauling a ship into dry dock. The visuals of this scene are absolutely mind-blowing and a good example of how CG can be used to enhance a scene without taking over or looking fake. Fantine's death as she hallucinates about seeing her daughter is beautiful and very sad, and I like the interaction between her and Valjean. I really liked it when Valjean and Cosette first meet and it's obvious that she can sense that he's a kind man. And the closing scene/epilogue is fantastic. Probably my favorite in the movie. :)

Any plans to see it?

This title would be better: "I Dreamed A Dream". Although I do like how people will now see that this is the poor yet lovely Fantine you created so beautifully realistic!
