Love flew away by OanaZ Love flew away by OanaZ
WARNING:Long comment,but it worths if you like the painting and want to fully understand the reason of it.
I consider this painting as a premonition, a prophecy...let's call it a word from Cassandra,the Trojan oracle.
The reason is simple as i made the original-in graphite- for someone special at that moment. Maybe few people know that once i define a sketch it has a title at that moment or never again. It's in my nature of artist,my instinct. I wanted a few times to change the title because it wasn't fair for him or for me as i was very happy,but i couldn't find a suitable one so it stayed as it was. Now I'm grateful i didn't change it, as it express exactly how i feel: sad for the withered summer magnolia, hopeless as i know it won't bloom ever again and a glimpse of hope for a better future.
The background with the Latin words amor=love and pax= peace weren't in the original,but they were created in the happy context. Also in the circles this written fully Oana in katakana(Japanese alphabet). Finally on one of the hair-sticks is carved the "pi" as symbol of the infinity of love.
I'd love to explain all the painting:it's full of symbols and feelings-from the expression to the clothes-but I'd like to hear your comments and critiques.

time: 1 month. I wasn't a month 24h a day but i worked a lot on it

First... I'm so happy you've come back Oana :hug:. I guess you've been busy enjoying summer.

Second... It's beautiful. So many little details to take in, the choice of colors used and the layout... everything works well together. Your getting REALLY good with doing hair.

thank you for the welcome:huggle:
i'll write soon a journal and comment a bit my was a full one :)

thank you so much for the appreciation!!:tighthug:
i must confess that the color theory(the complete one) it's still a mystery for me-i simply choose colors as i feel they work better
as for the hair i studied a lot this summer.i want to reach a new level-not the realistic one;the painterly's more expressive in my opinion

again a big big thank you:huggle:!!
