Painting of the Day: Close

"Close" by Ffo
  I like how it resembles Alphonse Mucha's style... I love the bright, pure red hues of the piece... I love the implied symbolism in it. Death and life. Even the poppies are a brilliant choice- a symbol of death and ressurection; in Roman-Greek mythology, poppies were given as offerings to the dead. I also love the details like how the colours of the flowers and hairs are reversed; the ribcage motifs in the background...

  In all, this is a beautiful piece of art and you can purchase it and various other works done by her via her Society6.
