My latest pastel painting, "The Flower of Snow"

It is painted with soft pastels and colored pencils on a board panel with mermaid paper stretched over water.

The image of this painting should remind you of Mika Nakashima's (中島美嘉=She is Japanese Singer)"雪の華(The Flower of Snow)" but this is not just a winter scene.

Please take a closer look.

It is strange, isn't it? This picture.

Now, what is strange about it?

Why did I do it?

I would like to leave that up to you to think about.

This Youtube is "The Flower of Snow" by Mika Nakashima.
