The Undine (Latin: Unda — a wave), also called ondines, are water elementals or spirits. Like all nymphs, they are very beautiful, and immortal. However, should one fall in love with a mortal man and bear his child, she will lose her immortality.
This legend always seemed to me very bittersweet, and the poignancy of forsaken love comes through on this canvas.
I absolutely love this piece! To me, this is your best work so far 🙂 I’m astonished by her skin! The colours that reflect from it! SO well crafted 🙂
Thank you! This one is also one of my favorites. It holds the record as “the fastest sale” as it sold about 30 mins. after she was hung on the gallery wall. I’m so happy that she went to a dear friend. 🙂
