Daphne Picture

A christmas present for a friend of mine... I like this very much. Took me my whole weekend to finish it. Do you know the story about Daphne? She was a nymph in Greek mythology; the god Apoll fell in love with her and started chasing her; but she was not interested, actually she feared him I think(hey, he was quite handsome, she must have had VERY good reason to run away) - and in the moment he touched her she turned into a laurel tree. Quite sad, huh? To give up freedom just to stay independet(as strange as it sounds... but it is so)

Done with oil colours on canvas. I LOVE oil colours... I'm much better with them as with acryl.
