New Fantasy Art: The Emanicpation of Galatea

My latest painting is complete!  

There is an ancient tale, told in Greek myth, about a sculptor named Pygmalion who carved a statue out of marble, naming her Galatea. Lusting after the shapely and comely figure of the woman he had carved, he begged Aphrodite to bring her to life. And so Galatea was given life. I have a different take on the myth. Galatea, refusing to be Pygmalion’s prize, his possession, takes flight and travels a starry path of her own choosing.

Special thanks goes to SenshiStock for her wonderful photo reference stock!
