What I really like about this, beside the wonderful knife work, is the way the guy on the right seems to be feeling superior and looking down on the girl on the left But she seems to be holding her own and preserving her dignity in spite of it. Maybe she is just saying "hmmm", that again. One could read racial overtones into this as well, not to mention political, although that may not have been the intent.
Thank you Susan,
You know how they say the feelings come through the artist.. I was thinking Cinderella and the Prince when I painted this. Weird you should see that they don't belong on the same page.
