|"The Messenger" acrylic on masonite board 40 x 60 cm by Christina Lank|
I had this thought of women suppressed, coming out to speak and the woman who would speak for them. Crows have long been a symbol of bad tidings, and also symbolize misjudgement in that regard.

I have some more work in progress shots for you to take a look at since the last time I posted so you can see the painting in more various stages :)
|after a few redos on her face, and even an eye color change things started shaping up|
|I worked on the whole body as if it was to be naked, just because i didnt know how much would be covered in the end.|
|when the feather collar came on, i was really happy as it added the drama i wanted!|
|with the hair and the crows going on it really started becoming the painting i had wanted!|
|The Messenger complete!|
I hope you like this new rather dark painting I have made :) I really look forward to debuting her at the show in September :O!
