Why the title Beauty and Fortitude?

How often our lives consist of the simple and the mundane all mixed and stirred with a helping of fortitude. It's the courage to live well with (and in spite of) pain/adversity that this painting is speaks of. This portrait also speaks of beauty, hence the rose and how there is always something to be grateful for.

Her dress has been painted in a beautiful cadmium red hue and I love the shading and tints suggesting the flow of the fabric.

She wears a gorgeous earring - her head is turned partly, so hence just the one and she's also holding a pretty rose.

The green abstract background is broken up with titanium white and some uniform mark-making.
