This painting was an absolute delight to work with. I explored in more depth the magic of using transparent oils on copper plate.
As I was painting this painting, I kept thinking about the personalities of these women and the mythical three graces, daughter's of Zeus, goddesses of charm, beauty, creativity and fertility. In my painting the women show a different more modern approach to the three graces. The woman on the left in her high heel shoes and her hand on her hip is the more dominant leader of the group, the women in the middle is playful with abandonment. and the kneeling woman is shrouded and more reserved, yet you can feel her devotion is to nature.
