Martha and the waxwing

Painting, 2020, 100×80 cm

Description of the artwork «Martha and the waxwing »

Styopa's waxwing brought the message to Martha. Of course, she won't tell us the secret. But one thing is clear - the beauty is clearly pleased, something good was brought to her by Stepka.
Look at her golden hair, large features. Fairy tale! And what a painted scarf she has: its contrasting shades attract attention to Marfusha.
Behind her is a cozy panorama of the Russian village: modest houses huddle on the hills by the river, in the distance is a wooden temple that looks after the neighborhood. A lovely sight!
I'll tell you a secret - I wrote to Martha, inspired by the Mona Lisa and the Vladimir Mother of God.
The beauty quickly appreciated my idea and happily posed. "My portrait will remain for centuries," thought Martha, "if only the artist became famous during his lifetime."
From the book “Russian Fairy Tales. Travel with the artist Konstantin Prusov "
