Provocative and alluring. It's so interesting how clothes and costumes can add or detract from a picture. I always wondered where the world was in which women dressed like this -- usually in sumptuous period European rooms with high ceilings and wonderful curves and filigree to the furniture. I had always wondered if it was just for photo shoots and glamorous models as a creation of a mythological fantasy world, or if the jet setters actually swim in such surroundings as backgrounds for their sensual games. Anyway they make for very intriguing images.

I like how you've handled the focus. Cropping is evocative and suggestive of a story because it's not entirely spelled out with too many details. There's room to add bits of our own story to your painting. . . like word association games.

Nice job!
