Bruce Combs - REACH BEYOND
What a wonderful variation on, I think, the usual concept of "Mother Nature" as a more "motherly" nurturer of growing flora; I think that animals are protected and thrive on "instinct" and "humans" various wants more or less consciously chosen with brain and emotions, and ranging from cruelty to nurturing. This beautiful version strikes me more like a stereotypical "Amazon" -- primarily an unkind concept of a powerful warrior. Ah, but the colors and determination in body language, especially as the focus of the eyes (as frequent with Natalie!). Don't overlook the light green irises, which I think do not occur exactly elsewhere here, although there are various hues of green. What an effective background of dark blue and green, mostly. Another great portrait! Thank you. Peace, etc., Bruce
