The frenzy in this work is very well done. I like the contrasting strokes, from sharp hard edged blade-like lines to the swirling masses of color. The blade forms envoke a feeling of danger, a storm that cuts. The concentration around the head seems to reflect an inner storm. I like how she appears to be wearing a mask that is consumed by and part of the frenzy. It makes me think of Venice, the elaborate masks they are known for, and how she is perhaps attempting to hide this storm and frenzy from the world or maybe even herself. The only alteration I would consider are her eyes. The one eye you see looks away. Another approach to consider would be to have her eye directed to the viewer, pulling them in, letting them see themselves as the person in the picture, and see themselves as enveloped by the storm or connected to the figure in a way which is difficult to detach from. A lot of emotive possibilities could be explored in the expression of the eye. By looking away currently she is distanced from the viewer, easing the tension when I think your intention was to enhance the tension. Overall a very emotive well done work.
