Sweet winter beauties

Art & Fashion
This is my favorite picture from a fashion shoot for KidsLife last winter. Our little models Miriam and Helen are posing in front of a collaborative painting by me and my friend Andrea, a huge painting called "Medusa". The part of it that shows here, reminds me of the milky way - lots of tiny silver dots form kind of like a veil over the painting. It shifts with the light and looks fascinating. This is how we work together: I do the painting part, while she adds graphic elements, such as silver dots or typography in crayon.
