    GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!

    How lovely. I love all the elements in it that make it reminiscent of the themes of Alma-Tadema and that group.

    I really love the vase too with the birds on it.

    There's something fascinating about your brushwork. It creates a slight broken feeling which conducts itself like a stylistic painterly lens. It keeps it from being plain. Yet the marks being sort of soft don't say 'this is the edge of a shape'. That's very good control.

    You show that in other ways with more contrast. So the lesser contrast strokes are not disruptive.

    Nice one, Pat.

    Just as a point of reference. And I'm not calling this a mistake, but having a figure facing away from the picture to an edge can tend to lead the viewer out of the picture. Always nice for the painting to the left.

    However your vase with the birds is so strong that sort of anchors the eye in your pic. But usually if there is a figure, especially one like this, she is still the center of attention by the nature of what we tend to look at.

    So that's a little asides that you can play with as you choose to speak to the viewer.

    Again, I love this painting.
