Oil on Canvas
This portrait from the series “Faces. Theatre”
I was inspired to create this picture by the image of Cio-Cio-san from Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly.
The image of my heroine is not as tragic as in the opera of the same name, but this is also a love story. Delicate, touching and a little naive. Love strong, but fragile, like the wings of a butterfly.
“Ah, Butterfly! No wonder they say that if you touch the wings of a butterfly, you will destroy it! ”
Portrait was made using gold leaf.
