Wonderful composition and radiant colors! That trailing fabric isn't very convincing though, it would be better if it had more broad surfaces instead of many small folds. Still an instant fave!

*fave'd* ... A view of a winged human that I've not yet seen, and that's something — after finding thousands of such works on line — which is an all too rare pleasure these days.

This Muse not only rises above the rocks that could break artistic disillusionment and smash ambition, she does so with a joyous spirit. We don't see all of what she's wearing — but we don't need to do so. Attitude, and altitude, are what matter here.
