Product Description

Title of Original Illustration:  Tamara

Medium:  Graphite and Pencil Crayon

The illustration represents my daughter’s belief in her Ukrainian heritage and her passion for Ukrainian dance.  I am also incredibly taken with the intricacy and intertwining patterns of the Art Nouveau style.  Upon quickly sketching my daughter sitting beside me one night, the composition took form.  The Pre-Christian costuming seemed to blend itself into the patterning of the artwork so easily.  This piece holds a special place in my heart and is a symbol of my Art style.

I experimented with the image, taking the simple line drawing of the original colour version and kept the black and red colouring.  The combination created a dramatic symbolism of Ukrainian culture particularly that of the traditional red poppy, the national flower of Ukraine.
