kinda creepy?

Well, I still can't remember the name of that one painting that I was thinking about in my ordinary day
 post a while back.

But I did come across this painting by George W. Bellows, an American artist (1882-1925).  It is of the artist's wife - but I find her expression and pose vaguely unnerving.  Not only because her face looks so...well, blank, there's absolutely nothing hiding behind her eyes..., but because I feel like everyone looks like that at least once in a while, when they're really tired.  Oh goodness, I hope I don't look like that too often...

Emma in a Purple Dress, 1920-1923
