I enjoy this piece because it's simple and to the point. Most of your pieces have a somewhat overwhelming feeling of emotion and an incredible amount of detail. And, while this piece is easily identifiable by being done by you, it's different.
Not trying to sound overly artsy-farsty here, but your other pieces send a message that is apparent. This piece seems impromptu and is one of a few of your works that leaves the viewer thinking, "What is she trying to say?" That being said, this is a very good thing and I think it's good that it leaves the viewer thinking.
I guess it's because, like I've said before, it's simple and to the point.

I appreciate this piece because of how subtle and delicate it is. The colors are so muted, but overall with such a quiet palette the reds and yellows create an impact on the feel of the painting.

The greys and blue hues draw me to a wintery, cold feeling, which I feel connects with the focal point and subject of the piece itself. As well as the concentrated area of detail on the face surround by a more washed out radial area (compared to your other works), it's draws the eye without diminishing the overall work.

This piece feels so fragile, and with your overpowering technique with watercolors I'm impressed with your capability to produce something so timid and of an introverse nature. Good job.

I want to love this, I really do, but perhaps it is the rampant presence of youth and beauty in your work that leaves me wanting more. There is nothing more dull to me than than youth and beauty.

Other than that, it is rendered impeccably and lovely in its utter simplicity.

This piece very much depicts a winery feel, it's almost as the the figure is hiding in the colours away from the cold. Great work

I love this, I like how shes looking down, as if shes rethinking about her life or mistakes that she made.
