    Wild is the Wind (Zephyr and Flora)

    Recently sold this painting. It was inspired by David Bowie's cover of Wild is the Wind.

    Congratulations on the sale! Always encouraging I really enjoy the way you treated the dappled light, and the hair of the wind spirit is quite lovely. This painting reminds me of stained glass windows.

    I particularly like the ethereal nature of both figures. The lost edges of the tree limbs and branches makes the background recede while still echoing the shapes of the blowing petals and hair. I also like how you handled the shading of the skin, it's probably the hardest thing to get right using such subtle colors and lighting.
