Being that close, do you think she gets Drops of Jupiter in her hair?

I have come across this image several times now and every time it amazes me.  The set up of the light, the composition of all the figures, the colors, the interesting combination of rough oil strokes with the starfield in the back...  The perfect placement of the shadow on the allegorical figure's back - Somehow these all combine to be more than the sum of its parts.  In short - art.  One of the many purpose of art is to expand one's mind, one's imagination, one's cognition...  In this respect, this work accomplishes this purpose perfectly.  Had to fave it.

Your brushwork is always so, so inspiring to look at. You make it seem so effortless! I'd love to watch you paint - any plans for process/timelapse videos in the future?

I did one a couple years ago:…
Hopefully, I'll find the tie to do more.
