My first impression is that Daisy is reserved or restrained...what is she holding back?

Daisy clearly has many truths that she will keep within her heart...I love the colors that set this mood as the textures tell her silent story.

Yes she seems to hold some secrets. Wonderful painting.
You're back into Rouault mode!

Great expression on her face.
"Daisy, Daisy, Give me your answer, do. I'm half crazy all for the love of you"
Words from a popular song, written in 1892 by British songwriter Harry Dacre.

Little Miss Daisy
it was just the first thing
that came to mind.
She didn't look like me
When my granmamaw
took me to the antique store
I saw the doll immediately
she could be my friend
My dear boy
is that really what you want?
Not a toy truck
or a rifle?
she will be my friend
I have no friends
I can talk to her.
A lonely boy
different and shy
needs a safe friend
one who will not tell his secrets
for many years
we shared so much
and now you are gone
and all I have is your painting

She looks unhappy.

She looks way smarter than me don't know if I'd like her staring at me from a wall.:) Great work

This is one of your best Hairy! Like her expression a lot and it looks fabulous with the frame. Great work!

Congratulations on your sale and the framed image is really powerful. Daisy has a haunted look in her eyes. One of your best!

love it so much :thumbsup:
I agree, one of the best from you. Very cool and moody. I like it.

Ladies and gents, I can’t thank you enough! You are so encouraging!
And the poetry we’ve been waiting for!

The color, variety of line and texture and even the subject and pose reminds me a lot of Picassos various harlequins. Maybe its the eyes but this one really grabs the viewer.

Hey Hairy -
Tried to post earlier but WC was down again; (between me and the WC site, it seems like one of us is always down).
I agree with Cliff, very cool (in a cold way), and to me very professional, polished, and calculated in execution. The subject seems also to be measuring the viewer.
No warm feelings for this one, but admirable none the less.

Big eyes like Keane but but with a deep psychology like Rembrandt. I like that your work has left the cartoony feel behind. Strong and smart. The shadow on the cheek really makes this.

I haven't commented on an abstract yet, but this one I found riveting. I couldn't pull my eyes away from it. This is quite amazing.
I don't know if you are familiar with the writer Clive Barker, but he does a series of books called "The Books of the Abarat" and he has done all the illustrations himself and Daisy would fit right in there.

Gents, at the risk of being super repetitive I’ll say that I can’t thank you enough!!!
