Very, very nice! Love the emotion here. Seems so sad, almost giving up, yet in the eyes there's still that tiny twinkle of hope. And the tilt of the head makes it seem as if she's looking up out of the darkness at something that might make things better.
Heh. Or perhaps I'm just reading way too much into the picture
Heh, truth be told, just looking at that piece inspires me to write some short noir story or something to match the mood of the painting. It's just one of those images that calls out for its thousand words' worth. Hehe, cheers!
