DesertRose

So the first idea was to make a series of naked women, for this moment it is interesting for me. And i decided to try to create such series. This one is the first one, i chosed the theme from the history. This girl is that great courtesan, Tais from Athens, the lover of Alexandr the Great. And I also like the song by Sting “Desert Rose”. So I wanted to paint this naked girl, this Tais, as a Desert Rose. And as a background I decided to make the Uzbek ancient architecture. Ok, I began to paint, and all was ok, the work went well… But I wanted JUST to paint work, and that it doesn’t have reflection in my real life. So first thing which happened is… I painted Thais, she is black haired. And accidentally I changed the hair color. Ok, it is not so dreadful, as it seemed, but anyway. Ok now I even stopped for a while to painted this work because I feel it is like a some kind of fight, between me and this painting. Because my relationship with my country right now is very difficult. I have a problems with documents. And here in this work, it is like a person, who looks in her Past… But the only thing for this moment I didn’t find a key, how to show the she and background are separated, that is only background, showed her Past, and showed the beauty of ancient architecture, and the contrast between ancient beauty, and young beauty, beauty of her body. So now I am trying to find this key, and to finish this work. Also I feel as soon as I will found this key, my situation in real life with documents will be done. So I believe this days I will do it, I will find this cure for it. Anyway for me it is very strange, at the first time I am feeling such strong relationships between me and my painting, it feels like it is very proud person, and I am with my crappy goat as a car absolutely impossible to come to her

:)
So I need to find that thing which will help me to melt her heart off…
