Hi Thomas! I don't know whether this was intentional or is an unnoticed result. The green of the eyes matching both in color and intensity the green of the trees lends a very surreal (Magritte) flavor to the painting. It is like looking through her eyes in reverse at the trees behind her. And the focal point, despite those luminous eyes becomes the red lips because of the compliment of color. I really appreciate the heightened color you are using these days as well as the greater contrast it affords you. You are doing beautiful work.
