I like it
I don't know why I usually don't go for the simple face & plain background portrait type but this caught my eye. The colors mesh beautifully setting the emotional tone of the piece before you can really absorb anything. Then the emotion of the face compliments the beginning tone, and the detail lays in the sweet spot between, not too much yet not too little. Once again I usually find these simple works overly simple and boring to a sense but I really do like this one for one reason or another, nice.
I think this is cool; design, colors, and subject matter.
