I don't mean to be moany, but she isn't a geisha because her obi(sash) is tied at the back, showing she is a courtesan. A geishas obi would be at the front. Great artwork though! I love her eyes.

That is incorrect information. Courtesan`s obi were tied in the front, so it would be faster to get the kimonos off and on. They were the prostitutes, not the geishas.

Just to confirm the above statement; it's true that a courtesan's obi would be tied in the front, as stated above, to get it off and on faster than if it was tied in the back. On the other hand, a Geisha ties her obi in the back. Read an entire novel on this.
