  9. Love the energy in this. And the gentleness in the eye of the storm.

  10. Energy in waiting!

  11. I’ll put it simply – I LOVE this!

  12. She looks like she’s surrounded by a favorite nature spot at the park or a forest somewhere. I love where you paintings take me away to.

  13. as a lover of the gesture in portraiture, this one made me smile. love it.

  14. Obviously, a nature loving girl, captured in a completely natural pose.

  15. As loose and flowing as the wind. Absolutely gorgeous, Elena!

  16. Just amazing. Superb painting Elena, so full of youthful innocence, optimism, life and simple joie de vivre, something I miss and that sadly, we all tend to lose to a certain extent as the years advance and life deals its knocks.

  17. There’s a hint of an imp about this young lady Elena ! Love it .

  18. 😡 Like, Like.

  19. The rhythm and movement of the background enhances this portrait and complements the title.

  20. Beautiful work Elena, you capture her playful spirit. I like how loose you kept the background and kept the details for her face.

  21. I agree with one of your commenters–she looks like a long, lanky young model. While still a happy child!

  22. she’s adorable…she’s a model in the making!

  23. Lovely, you have an amazing ability to capture the mood of your subjects.

  24. piękne ,urzekające kolorystycznie
