"When humans participate in ceremony, they enter a sacred space. Everything outside of that space shrivels in importance. Time takes on a different dimension. Emotions flow more freely. The bodies of participants become filled with the energy of life, and this energy reaches out and blesses the creation around them. All is made new everything becomes sacred." - Sun Bear

    Wonderful paintin on this one, again, Roman. I really like the natural color palette, which you managed to make very lifelike without it becoming “boring”. Love the color you picked for her lips - and really dig her eyes. I get wisdom, decades of experience and a tiny degree of sadness from them.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

    Gorgeous piece.
    The desaturated hues and ochre tones bring us to an ambiance tah fits the character perfectly.
    Stunning art piece my friend.
    Your stroke and colorwise decisions speak loud. Love it.
