Hi Liza,

It's funny -- the title and the face
tell a mysterious story. I'm wondering what's "not quite here." Has a man let this beautiful woman down? What is happening?

Hi Barbara,

That is funny! The title is actually "not quite her" as I have meanwhile corrected it. That little "e" at the end sneaked in without being noticed in order to change the whole meaning. Nothing much mysterious just that I didn't quite manage to capture the features of the woman which I was a bit unsatisfied with because I like her face very much. Will probably make another attempt sometime. Thank you for commenting!!

Hi Liza, Likeness or not, it's a very engaging portrait with those searching eyes!
