My sweet metropolitan Daphne by meluseena My sweet metropolitan Daphne by meluseena
Acrylics on primed Acrylic board, with sand texture.

Dunno if you know who Daphen was (I'm a greek myth nut, me) but basically, she turned into a tree to avoid Apollo's advances.

OHH.. I think one of my new obsessions are tree-persons.. Tree as hands, tree as hair.. as feet.. I LOVED THIS ONE!

I like tree persons too!! DO you know the story of Apollo and Daphne? You may like it so :)

Also the art of Kathleen Lolley features a lot of tree people - look it up! :)

Fabulous. The textures are so rich, and yet there's a definate lethargic vibe from this painting. :+fav:

Wow, this is beautiful. The idea is great and I love the coloring. Different shades of blue and grey, and then bright red :love:

I think the greek myths are very interesting, but cause my memory isn't the best they're all just mixed in my head :P
