She's a charmer!! I love the way her dress goes off the shoulder and the little bauble in her hair - nice colors!

Another winner! All your gals have distinct personalities.
Do you like Modigliani? This is terrific, great use of complements and I love the straight forward gaze of the woman...super eyes. derek

Clemmie, what can I say?
Your Ladies are always so very wonderful and unique!
I love the Barrette in her hair, just a little touch, but so telling.
She brings me to think of "Zelda" in F.Scott Fitzgeralds work.
Wonderful and I like the style.

Nice work, I really like the added touch of the little barrette.

I love this one - for a seemingly emotionless face, it's actually quite expressive.

Terrific as usual, she is straight from the 1920's, I love the green of her dress/top...super stuff!

Clem, I just love Blanche! I love the juxtapositioning of the colour purple with a young face. We tend to associate the colour purple with aging (anyone ever read the poem, "When I Grow Old" by Jenny Joseph - http://www.aztriad.com/pathmark/purple_poem.html ) and Blanche could be either a reflection of an already senior longing for her younger days or of a time yet to come for her.
