Good pose and expression, Gudrun.

Like it Gudrun- a sound composition with an interesting focal point on the face. The painted lines of the figure help it along well,

A very interesting painting Gudrun, great smile and pose. Bet you enjoyed the biscuits too 😊

Superb expressive work again, Gudrun, no wonder she's pleased with it.
