Statuesque, curvaceous, fair skinned, flaming hair, are the ways to describe this figure. She rises from the opening of an unnaturally black seashell, overlooking an ocean horizon. A single cloud hovers over her shoulder. Squinting in the bright sun, wind blows her hair as she diffidently returns the viewer’s stare. Her posture borders on apprehensive; legs disposed to cross, arms ready to cover. Her mood seems frozen in transition; although it is not clear if she will next recede into the shell or rise from it, the whimsical palette spins a narrative of beginnings.

Smooth paint-like blends depart from the traditional crispness of photography. This is especially evident in the implication of motion in the strands of hair.

Countless hours have been spent constructing this limited edition photograph. It can be purchased directly from the artist.
