Masquarade challenge painting WIP

Her heart
fragile, intense, vulnerable...
She hides - a little

But she is on guard
... watching you,
watching her...
She guards
her heart

So.  Another of Jenn's challenges attempted.   This weeks theme was Masquerade - I had NO idea, so after much procrastinating, came up with this!   (Jenn's Artist Playroom challenge #31 Masquerade)

This is the sketch... to be continued!
