So, originally I conceived her to be a muse of passion, peace and poise, hence her name: “Aozora” (青空, blue sky). She stayed that way for the color pencil drawing, but for the oil painting she transformed into something else entirely. I call her the “Égérie verte” (green muse). I don’t know her true name, but I do know her meaning: she embodies jealousy, pain, ire and delirium.
I ended up taking a lot of photos of this piece because even though I spent what I thought was plenty of time laying out the composition beforehand, it still ended up lopsided, so I used my phone’s photo editing app to constantly flip the photos.
