Painting Intuitvely

I wanted to do a figure painting but didn't want to be tied to a reference photo.  Yesterday I painted from a photo taken by a friend, professional photographer Tom Szalay.  I don't have much experience painting different ethnicities so wanted to experiment but didn't want to use another one of his photos.  Instead I just started painting without any preconceived idea of whether it was going to a child, woman or man.  I did have a sense it would be someone other than a Caucasian but even then I wasn't sure.

The painting evolved and changed along the way and this is what I ended up with.  Any ideas for a title?
