This was the first piece I did after I got back from Italy.
To date - she's one of my favourite pieces.
The reference I used was from my Botticelli book.
But I can see in this piece - something has shifted deep inside of me.
And it was coming through in my work - I can't explain it.
To me - she looked more womanly than any of my other pieces.
Had I progressed from safe little girl to woman, through this trip.
Whatever it was or had happened - it feel sacred and it felt deep.
I love that she's not perfect but she's deeply interesting!
