An Exotic Reverie

"Touching Her Shoulder"
11 x 14 inches, oil on canvas

 Not only do I love this graceful pose, but the lighting (which I can take no credit for) truly makes the painting. The way only her nose and cheekbone emerge from her face, while most of the light falls across her opposite breast and shoulder is what drew me to this view of the model.

What thoughts are brewing behind those eyes?
Could it be 'Ow, my hip hurts in this position'?

I choose to imagine a more exotic reverie.
