Very beautiful work!

l-o v-e!! l/f

Jane Small replied:

Thank you Ed !!!

We know the meaning of colours Jane, so it is not difficult to describe the atmosphere of this once again wonderful painting. Violet signifies spirituality, meditation, inner oneness, mysticism, inspiration and art. Its not difficult to see all this not only in this once again wonderful nature but also in the attitude of this beautiful woman. But I see also loneliness and melancholy and her widely opened eyes signify that she is eyeing her beautiful outer world as well as her own inner world. Her flowing long hair signifies the blowing wind, maybe even a little bit more than a butterfly breeze, but she keeps her composure like a queen.... Almo v/f

Jane Small replied:

Oh yes !! "She keeps her composure like a queen" even in a sudden gust of warm wind! What a delightful gift of expression you have Almo.Thank you very much for your beautiful and interesting thoughts on this work.
