Resolutely bleak. A powerful image. I like the low pov, it adds to the distance in the eyes.
I'm adding my award.

A brilliant informal portrait.
Life has not been kind to Maria: that face could tell a thousand tales.
And the composition: brilliant use of negative space. It has echoes of the celebrated Arnold Newman portrait of Stravinsky at the piano, but while Stravinsky looks straight at the camera, Maria looks away . . . .
She also invites comparison with the woman in Degas' Absinthe . . . .

Have a wonderful weekend SmileSmileSmile

She has many a tale to tell, I'm sure. You have captured that vacant stare to perfection.

We have a saying here...."She has been ridden hard and put to bed wet."
