About This Painting

Marie-Laure is an art student from Paris, France. She's quite a brilliant thinker and her drawings are outstanding.

She has such a pretty and charming, tiny little face, and such a "European Hairstyle" — so I asked her to pose for a painting. I like interesting faces. Hers is both pretty and interesting.

If you knew her, you'd agree, this is her.

If you must know, her name is pronounced (with a French accent) something between Ma-hee-Lo and Ma-hee-Loo, and you have to push your lower lip all the way down showing all your lower front teeth when you say the "Loo" part. It's essentially French for Marie-Lauren.
