Jane, you do like to stir the dark side in me. For me this is a dark and tragic image. A beautiful woman with a gorgeous blue eye from which tears of anguish are streaming. Her face appears to be wrapped in a blood soaked bandage from which trails of blood are trickling downwards. Where her left eye should be appears to be a bandage which alludes to more facial damage. Just what has happened is not obvious, Perhaps a terrible accident, a terrorist bomb or even a savage beating at the hands of an enraged lover?

Art should stir the imagination and when it mixes with what we know about the dark side of our kinder, gentler world, it becomes unsettling. Your picture leaves me feeling upset, a feeling of smoldering rage burning in my soul. Well done.

I think this is my favourite of yours so far.This is stunning.

First,I love the colours,they are in such harmony,a delight for the eyes.

The meaning behind this picture seems really abstract to me.But,sometimes,a picture is even better when it has no meaning,if you know what I mean.

The way how you used the mediums is amazing,the result is so beautiful.

You are extremely good at drawing eyes.But why is she crying?

The only thing bothering me in this picture is the second eye.I would just add something to show that there is a second one,otherwise the picture feels at bit too focused on the left side.It doesn't change the fact that this picture is my favourite now.

Hope the critique helps, :icontatirasolil5:

I have always adored obscured faces, head scarves, beautiful eyes peering. I wrap myself frequently, burka like but not as some ferverent adherant; as a female form for my and other's vision, concealing and revealing. j'adore this work of yours.

This is, by far, my favorite work from you ever, and I really wish that I could critique it but I'm literally terrible at critiques, and it's not like I see anything wrong with this piece anyway. It's beautiful and I was simply awestruck when I first saw it. Very mysterious and inspiring.

I didnt understand whether the red stuff is blood, or whether the curtain is supposed to be red .. :) anyway, looks great, and very touching.

Jane this is a superb work of art. The raw emotion that comes from only one eye, is the sign of a great artist, and the dark red only enhances the work. Oh by the way how do you get the eye lashes to leap off the page? I the blue of the eye combined with flowing tears, is what helps you to be one of the best painters I have had the privilege to know.

While I think thist could be seen as a picture of extreme physical pain, it could also be taken as an image of emotional pain masked by the veil. However, no matter how much we try to hide that pain from others, either to protect ourselves or to stop them worrying, it will eventually seep through. Whichever way you take it, it has a remarkable depth of emotion and cries out to the viewer for understanding.

This is a very emotional portrait from my view point.....
A Curtain that hides a face of a woman in absolute pain... tears streaming down... the red invokes the colour of blood, of sacrifice, of torture, of extreme pain...
Absolutely breathtaking.....
