Girl in the window by petercmatthews Girl in the window by petercmatthews
This is an oil painting from a photographer's self portrait (Santina). I found it on Deviantart and asked her permission to use the image. It was such an enigmatic look... not sure if she was sad, thoughtful, lonely or amused. Her expression had me captivated for ages.

I feel like you captured something similar but different in the expression, in the eyes. I dont know why and i hate to be "that person" but this just takes me back to when i used to watch naruto. The bridge arc specifically. I know one of the guy characters kinda looked similar but no, i mean the undefined emotion in the eyes was similar...
