Suggester says: "The attention to detail is mesmerising. The atmosphere and weather create a gorgeous focus and bring chills of cold. And those colors - the pale yellow of summer stands out so beautifully among the blues of winter; the color choice further enhances the sense of fragility the female character has about her."

15x22 Strathmore wet media board + Daniel Smith watercolor

Every Spring he travels far to find and return the spirit of summer to his land. Every summer is filled with bliss and family. Every fall is filled with grief and inevitable mourning. Every winter is filled with preparations to do it all over again.

I like the curly-white-hair cape and the color choice. Very cold.

Oh god I hope that doesn't actually read as a giant cape made out of human hair in the painting lol.
