In this pose I found that the expression in this model was just right for the story line of a peasant girl that is out to find water or wine.  I would like to think it was wine.

She is not your average peasant girl; she has an assuredness that defies the typical peasant girl and yet, there is a coyness about her.

After she finds the wine, I can see her going to the village for a night of dancing and fun.

I have entitled this painting "Defiance".
