The title of my piece is "Inverno" which is Italian for winter and I celebrate the later stages in life. My figures are not elongated, nor perfection, yet they are kind and wise. I stayed with a muted color palette referencing a later stage in life and Botticelli's three graces palette. I chose not to make the women old but just more mature and less idealized. In this piece I celebrate the ties that bind, the cords that interweave, and the connection among the sisterhood.
My 'style' utilizes simple shapes, layered color, and a narrative approach. Hopefully, you can see a little of Botticelli's influence in there.
Thanks for listening.....Di
