Being so connected to something one loves, yet thousands of miles away, creates a barrier that almost does not seem real, but it is there.

Oh wow love this. Love how you have her there and the tension of her leaving and the colors against the walls and brick.. so intriguing!

All of the empty space : You're going out on a limb and it's working. I like the bricks- orange and purple look good side by side. I'm wondering- are we seeing the entire painting, or is this a detail ? She's cropped, as if to be leaving us. Your art leaves me with an unfinished story. I think when you're able to arouse curiosity with a portrait , you've made something very good.
