Thee tone of this image is interesting. Although we the theme is an awakening, the feeling of this image is rather dark and somewhat in contrast to what we think of when we think of "awakening", which some people relate to brilliance. Metaphorically, for instance, to be awake is to see the light.

However, I think this piece is meant to perhaps represent the more literal sense of awakening. The blurred background, the messy hair, the rather zombie like appearance. In this work, awakening is not about brilliance, or immediate revelation. It is about the disorder, the disorientation and uncertainty that one must often face in order to finally be awake.
What do you think?

Let's start with the bad, she's supa white, okay now for the good, I love the coloration, this is no piece of shit, I like it, The question may be "Does it thrill Bill?" The answer would be a huge yes, Bill is very much thrilled into writing this critique no one but the owner would even care to read, point is I like it, it's good, it is a work of art, suddenly the owner has my respect, let us not forget about the blurry yet amazing background. I would by far recommend this to a friend, probably even a random stranger.

The most tender portrait of the Winter I've ever seen.
White, white with a little bit of rose - the Spring is coming.

beautiful. I love the expression on her face and the colors are as crisp as the winter scene. It reminds me of some gothic fairy tale from long ago. I guess that's what her body language and the eye shadow is telling me anyway.
