    Believe this captures the theme very well. The title of the piece completes it. Well DONE!

    lovely, I agree this captures the feeling for me. I like the soles of her feet the best, perfection.

    I love her back just above the dress – so vulnerable. Who could have hurt such a beautiful creature I feel myself imagine. So very beautiful and lonely and intimate. Breathtaking.

    Just beautiful. And sad. Being the Queen of Lint, I’m thrilled that you captured the cloth!

    The only thing I can add to how beautiful this painting is would be to point out what makes it exceptionally great for me. Here’s a short list:

    The soft strokes of hair at the nape of her neck
    The half circle shadow by her left foot
    The strokes that lead from the corners of the frame to her feet and of course the wonderful detail on her dress.

    This is simply magnificent.
