Oil painting of a mannequin from the Macy's Flower Show, New York (its a public display that happens ever year - they don't always use mannequins, but there are always plants and flowers, which temporarily transform the window displays into "urban jungles"... all the buildings and people around form a parergon for what is going on inside the window)

Edit = I've finally uploaded a higher quality image of my painting. It's closer to the original painting now, as the saturation is up (I painted the roses as a glaze, where it's just one thin wash of oil paint, backlit by the white canvas, for high saturation). I hope you can also see the texture in the background now.

Thank you for all the comments! :)

I'm afraid the painting already has a home (at least for now). I am, however, hoping to get an exhibition happening, whereby I'd finally be able to put some of my works up for sale!

Beautiful! I love that from the interesting angle you've used the mannequin appears almost human. It seems like there's a tinge of longing on her face. Very striking.
