Portrait of a celtic maiden

By crayonmaniac
First of all, please FULL view, otherwise it is blurry, thank you :heart:

*******************************

For Ellen :heart:

********************************

Celtic stone after a reference, but after awhile i let go of the example and followed my own swirls, probably not correct but i enjoyed myself.
Girl vaguely inspired by a reference but only for 20% or so as for the coronet, same thing, my own invention but inspired by some existing coronets
Ivy and blue flowers recuperated from my other art but it suits this work well.
Cannot say how many hours, i painted this off and on in March

thank you all for faves, comments, watches that come from this work :heart:

********************************

whoohoo and I won the order of the Dragon of march with this, thank you dear friends

Love your art! It elicits feelings of the divine feminine. Your color selection is very rich and deep. You use what I describe as royal colors which are my favorite. I love the subtle communication and connection I feel in her eyes. That is huge for me. She looks into me and sees something. Of course, it isn't just me, but it feels very personal, and that is gift you have in your art.  Being able to provide a personal connection to your subjects. The sensuality in your work is luxurious, gently passionate, and classy. Definitely, want to decide which of these I would like to purchase if that is possible. I will be moving this year, so I will need to identify the room and mood. Thank you so much! Art and poetry communicates what words cannot. I will check out your other work. Would love to see you paint connection between male and female and somehow convey it with a hint a oneness and partnership beyond traditional roles yet honoring what those aspects naturally bring to each person. I have a shamanic orientation, so the naturalness in your work touches that as well. I could go on, but I think a light, yet deep, and authentic appreciation
is appropriate.

Ben you are amazing and your words touch me greatly and deeply, i am honored i can have this effect with my paintings on a few visionaries like you, thank you for the effort of describing the effect of my art on you, that is a price beyond prices for an artist, waw
That is just one stunning piece; something to be appreciated; the skills you've developed are just incredible over your life; and the dedication/ perseverance and attention to detail.  I think it's absolutely Magic.

can i put this in the works dedicated to me? I have a section for them on my page or perhaps i should do you a journal and give you exposure to my 2800 watchers, what do you think? I love these spontaneous meetings and results for all artists concerned, waw
Madormidera's avatar
Of course you can!! And I'm sure that there are going to me more jewellery inspired by your arts because I love them ^^
crayonmaniac's avatar
and there is going to be more paintings inspired by you, so we have a perfect circle, i will definitely do you a journal when i have finished with my next painting on you, fantasy it is, i hope you love scarlet because that is the only color left to me in the series
Madormidera's avatar
I do love scarlet! And I'm sure this will be a new masterpiece - you have a great sense of colour :)
