Very dreamy -- both her internally and the statement it makes through your use of marks. The pose is wistful conveying a loving openness.

I can also see this symbolically as a portrait the Muse herself -- reflections of essences tasted and apprehended through the Visual Arts.

Very lovely. :):):)

Beautiful Pat, I wonder what she is thinking of?

She looks like a pensive gipsy lady. :rolleyes: There's some story we can hardly figure out. There's insight, ponderation, sentiment, passion and sex appeal expressed by her dignified and noble pose.
Very beautiful.
