That's a look like " I don't believe a word you're saying!" Very effective.

Her name is Katie and she was my first secret true love. It was so secret, she didnít even have a clue. You sure took me back with your expressionism. Very well done. Purple is my favorite color too.

Wonderful style and work.

Naturally I'd love the name and the face - love her gaze - and painting are very 'in your face' and think it's terrific.

Another charming work from the mind of Madame Clementine. That stare is heart stopping.

She's lovely Clem - and a bit seductive and at the same time, forbidding? :)

Do you get BBC tv where you are? - Violette looks a lot like a character in Holby City! :lol:

Hi Clem. Tried to download reply yesterday but site was down so here goes again. This is fantastic. Purple is a very strong lady and I would not like to get on the wrong side of her. That gaze reminds me of a particularly strict teacher I had who could wither one with one look.

thanks a lot Maureen!and of course I don't get bbc channel!ah!ah!

thank you Chammi for sharing your thoughts!yes she looks a bit severe but I think there is a kind of gentleness in her...IMO she just wants to hide it..maybe to preserve herself...bisous my friend!!

I meet Katie in my early school days and behind her piercing eyes was young woman way too grown up for her age. I never knew why but no one liked her and she had no friends that I know of except me. I only knew her for that one year in school when her family moved out of town. I never saw her again but I often think of her and here you painted her. Both good and sad but no bad feelings.

The fact that her gaze can be interpreted in many ways makes this work so riveting. I like the abstract manner of her coat and hair - it supports and says just enough to keep the focus on that stare.

thank you very much Coralie!I like what is a bit intriguing...
