Moonlight at the ocean, 2022

180 x 98 cm

Granite, marble and pinetree

This is the second one of the Ladies of the forest. This one presents night, water and winter. I have been touched by the ocean in the night time of winter. Granite part is like winter sky with small stars. The head is like shiny moon middle of the dark ocean which moves down to the snowy beach.

The figures movement was mostly important in this one. I wanted it to really be like moving water.

Reason why this is the winter is that snow and ice is just frozen water. and night is the longest in the wintertime.

The black color is made with oil beewax and ash.
