its long time no talk, but i was and am kinda busy...
this piece is the result of a collaboration-project, with photographer: hakanphotography
for "Project Creo", an exhibition themed `Collaborations´,at the arts-center in St. Petersburgh, which will be held there between march till may...
i have to thank Akif, for this wonderful invitation, the collaboration consists of four images, for which i´ve picked four of his photographs as root, i tried to turn the subjects into another world, like they would switch from the photograph to a moment of a daydream, where they are the subjects of these paintings.
here is a hint to the root image, for those of you curious guys
this one took me about 7 hours to work on...
with acrylics and airbrush in Painter-classic
hope you like,

I've already seen Hakan's picture of that girl, which are really beautiful. But you're work is as great
As always such paintaking skill in the details of the Native braided hair, face and body paint against a pueblo wall. Then a surprise in her modern dress.
It reminds me of Nada (Sandman).
"but i was and am kinda busy..."
Heh, I know what your talking about, but good to see this painting, very inspirational
there are dozens of these coming in the next vew weeks, because i was inspired too
thanks for stopping by from time to time, appreciated!
btw - who is the messenger? the bird or the snail? or neither?
I like the 4 elements used - fire and water [that she's holding], earth [snail] and air [bird].
well, you´ve won as much washing-machines as you can carry
.... *sits back and enjoys*
so lusious (the colors, pose)
and indeed i like playing with several elements in a painting,but i´m still learning.
but i´m also happy, that such a heavy coloring leads to a merely positive feedback...!
I am dazzled by the colors and your style
