Hellooo...
my bf is convinced this is a man. ITS A WOMAN!

i was going for a 30's or 40's type of look.
 18x24 oil on board. Took a few days...

i'd be very fond of some outsiders thoughts.

Maybe it's the nose. But it looks like a woman to me.

Nice work, btw.

It looks like a woman to me.  Gender issues aside... I really like this painting.  I've looked back at your other posts (all great) but this one is my standout favourite.

Maybe your boyfriend needs glasses? I'm not sure what the 30's 40's syle is but I love the painting and the brush strokes and style. It does look like an old style to me but I don't know much about styles.

That is so lovely! I love the colors- especially in the back ground and in the highlights. The droopy flower fills in the composition beautifully.
It's a girl- I think your bf is teasing you Wink.

She's very obviously a woman! Your boyfriend must be teasing...or really not the person to ask artistic opinions of lol!

i knew immediately that it was a woman.  Maybe that droopy flower in the background subliminally suggested male.   Shocked

I think that's a really nice painting and if I saw it at a shop, I'd stop and take the time to gaze at it.
