    Good grief. It's a picture. If some don't like it, others will. Maybe he will be comissioned to do another of her. More off the wall is how the press insists on using her maiden name. That just isn't one. What is that all about?


    Well, this is my opinion and I am not a painter either, I guess it's the way the painter painted her face, the interpretation of her eyes ( eye make up ) the cast under her eyes, and the coloring of her complexion and the color of her cheeks and lips too. Maybe the painter should have changed the background color with something lighter. It's the interpretation of the gaze from her eyes and the casting shadows under her eyes that make her look mature than her real age. It's too bad but I hope that award winning painter should reconsider it. Mistakes happen and we can learn from them for the better.


    I'm Sorry but this is a portrait of A MUCH OLDER WOMAN Kate is a YOUNG woman maybe this is her in her 40s


    The portrait is great she's a stunning lady. The only thing I would have changed would be her wearing something a bit lighter in color.


    agree, I can't paint at all but this is simple "Not Done".


    she also looks HIGH around the eyes like she just smoked a hootie, this is what I see


    if you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen, people carry their feelings on their shoulders these days, so we can't tell the truth, but spare people's feelings, this world is becoming politically incorrect


    painting should be flattering, this makes her look old, she looks at least 45 in that photo, how old is she, all the wrinkles under the eyes, and around the mouth, just not a true portrait, maybe when she is 45 or 50


    the pic is jus ordinary and dull. but i duno what they expected tho


    She is a beautiful girl and this picture is not beautiful........
