Paintings: Solitude

12 x 16"
Acrylic on canvas
~ Prints are available here ~

I originally envisioned this as a much more complicated piece, with snow falling in the background, tattoos on the back, ribbons tied about the arms, and other such overkill. However, my friends praised her so highly when they saw her half-finished (only one wing with incomplete shading, sans snow, etc.) that I reconsidered what I wanted vs. what the painting needed to be. The end product is a great deal simpler, and lovelier for it.
