She needs a name

My newest little portrait needs a name. Not a name for the model (her name is Emily) but a name for the painting itself that speaks of the emotions, thoughts or mood it evokes. At least, I HOPE it evokes something. To me, she looks a little sad or frightened but also defiant. Pensive, maybe. What do you think?
