Finding the Story #201 oil 8"x8"

It feels so good to painting in oil again. I am a bit rusty, but I still like this overall.
What drew me to this person is how she unconsciously held her hands in the same position as the painting. I have noticed this a lot in observing people looking at art. Sometimes they try and take a pose, but more often it just happens. Both women are dressed in pink but Modern Girl has leggings and a purse and of course her hair is down and her skirt is short.
People seem drawn in to some paintings and they will walk around and then return to one, maybe several times. This young woman kept coming back to this one. It felt like she wanted to talk with the woman in the painting and hear her story.
