For this image I wanted to create the look of a classic painting and took some inspiration from the Boticelli painting The Birth of Venus
Both are concerned with birth, feature a beautiful young woman hair blowing in a breeze that carries roses, and both are set at the sea
The title for my work comes from a far more modern inspiration, the song "Into The Mystic" by Van Morrison
Into the Mystic
We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won as we sailed into the mystic
Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic
And when that fog horn blows I will be coming home
And when that fog horn blows I want to hear it
I don't have to...
