Just adding more comparisons:
"Hummingbird Nocturne" painting from "The Immoderates" show.

The serigraph version, as posted at Shagmart:

Note that Shagmart is showing the serigraph in this case,
which they seem to do more often than not.

As for the image itself, I thought the show was called "The Immoderates"
and not "The Immodests."

I like the pumped up contrast in the serigraph, most notably, the figure
now has black hair. In the original, I get the feeling I am looking
at her through a screen door, because the values are all so close in her
space, whereas in the print, it seems clear she is just standing there.
The black hair also make her compete more with the hummingbird for being
the focus of the image. In the paining, the bird has more of our attention.
