I loved painting this figure in a limited color range of rust-reds, grays and a bit of blue - and in a setting that's a bit mysterious and austere. At the very end, I thought to add some tiny flowers near the water and noticed that her big hand was the perfect shape to hold one of them. Hence the story. But really, it's the sturdy and serene woman here who is the story.

This one is really beautiful. It's dark and moody and striking. Not surprised it's sold.
