    OMG, this is the most stunning portrait I think I've seen of yours.

    I say call it: "Wistful".

  • Kim 24.8.08

    thank you Casey..
    I'm doing some experimentation with my 'style' daughter wants a portrait like this one !!
    a lovely title...and very true to this young girl's character....

  • Leet 24.8.08

    Hi kim
    I already subscribe your blog
    I will think what is the tittle and will submit to you

    Cheers - Leet

  • The Success 24.8.08

    Done... I have subscribed you
    And I add you in my blogroll
    The title is "Human Life Cycle"
    I give that tittle because from your painting I saw the color change from black and white to blue or blue to black and white.
    That is our life, from baby growth to man/women and the getting old.
    So what we want to do with our life? Add with great color and let it just black and white

    Success for you

  • Kim 24.8.08

    thank you Leet...

  • Matthew S. Urdan 25.8.08

    Done, you're in my blogroll titled: Meanderings in the drop down list on my left sidebar.

  • SharonWrightArtist 25.8.08

    Terrific portrait! Soooooo interesting, can't stop looking at it.
    Reminds me of an idea I had of marrying up the two sides of mine and my mothers faces. I now have the answer to do the painting....keep it simple and straightforward. It has so much impact. Thanks again Kim.
    As for a title...I'm thinking!

  • SharonWrightArtist 25.8.08

    Best wishes

  • James Presley 26.8.08

    I already have you on my blogroll and I have just subscribed, don't know why I didn't earlier. duh! :)

    My title is 'Marissa Mesmerized by David Bowie's Eyes'

    It reminds me of Major Tom and I think the two colors are beautiful in the eyes, mesmerizing. And Marissa is beautiful so should definitely get a mention. :)

  • Kim 26.8.08

    hi Mobisop
    will do :) :)

    hi James
    thanks and your title is great ..
    very observant of your to pick up the different colours in the eyes..
    I'm a fan of David Bowie...too :)

  • Anonymous 26.8.08

    Amazing portrait! My first thoughts when seeing this was along the lines of the Three Faces of Eve, so my title is "Faces of Marissa". I've added you to my blogroll and signed up for the emails!

    Paula :)

  • John M. Mora 27.8.08

    "Beyond Life's Colors"

    Oh, Kim - if you wish please place large copies of a photo somewhere of the original painting and maybe the photo you used) and allow me to play with it....hope you are well - I miss those ladies in the dashing yellow caps.

    Thanks again for the award.....John

  • Mariuca 27.8.08

  • durano lawayan a.k.a. brad spit 27.8.08

    Hello Kim,

    This is a splendid concept in style.

    My suggested title is : Marissa's Metamorphosis.

    It could well be your metamorphosis too. :-) --Durano, done!

  • Kim 27.8.08

    hi Paula
    thank you...:)
    my thoughts too.. when I was creating this image..

    hi John
    photos here...
    thanks for your title...:)
    it's rather quiet without the dashing yellow caps ;)

    hey Mariuca
    it's going to be really difficult to choose as they are all so good... :)

    thanks Durano...
    metamorphosis is very true...
    and you know me!!
    ...always experimenting :)

  • Amy Lilley Designs 27.8.08
