At first glance, we immediately feel like this composition is a representation of womanhood. There is something very warm and sirenic about this piece. The milky sheets that are cascading around her lower body remind us of a blossoming flower.  I love how the sunlight is gaily echoing her creamy peachy skin tone. The golden strands of her hair are both romantic and inviting. She is exuding an uncanny Amazonian confidence. Her strong stance is brilliant and the femininity of the dimples in her lower back trace all the way up to this woman peering into the sun. This mysterious woman is proud, alluring and refreshingly free.
