Gosh, it looks just like Nicole Kidman in The Hours, even without the face. Eerie.
I just love the texture in this portrait. Thanks for sharing it, Hannah!
Beautiful portrait - I love the lack of features in the face, it leaves you free to guess the mood of the sitter.
I like the new look blog, very nice. It's a great portrait as well - amazing how unimportant the face is in this that a blank will do.
Dear All, Glad that the WP has gone down well this week... Brit - I have *never* seen The Hours, but I love Virginia Woolf and Simon at Stuck in a Book was singing its praises as well this week, so I think that it may be time for a trip to the Amazon DVD library....Zibilee - you are most welcome. yes, It looks as though it has been painted on fabric doesn't it?Tonia - that is so true... I personally imagine that she is asleep though. Desperate Reader - Thank you so much... Thanks for commenting folks, and Bon Weekend!Hannah

I just finished "To the Lighthouse" and read "A Room of One's Own" Last year. I love V. Woolf!
Hi HannahI love these portraits - very interesting! Thanks for your comments on my blog - and sorry I seemed to ignore them, actually I had set up notifications wrongly, so I wasn't seeing them. Doh!Sarah
ItsJUSTme - thanks so much for leaving a comment - I think that Woolf is marvellous although I actually prefer her letters and life writing to her novels (which I do love as well of course). She is number one on my fantasy list of people whom I would have liked to correspond with. Sarah - Don't worry at all! I have, at times, got really stressed about comments - worrying about how best to respond and how to keep up. I went through a phase of responding directly to each person by email and I am currently (as you can see!) doing it in the open on the blog, and think I am kind of happy with that but it is quite demanding and I am not offended at all. You have a lovely blog and thanks for visiting mine. Ok - Ta ta for now all. Hannah
Love this!! and love her! I'm about to start 'to the lighthouse' and recently found a copy of 'writer's diary' in a resale shop! you MUST see the hours!
I love Woolf - I wrote my university thesis on her and had such fun doing it. Beautiful image.
Daniel - isn't it lovely?! Enjoy To The Lighthouse... The Hours is on my list. Bloomsbury Bell - That sounds like a pretty good subject to me, I'm glad that you like the image. thanks so muh for your visits and commentsHannah
I love this painting. I don't know why but sometimes a blank face conveys much more than one that's painted in.
