My version of ´Flaming of June` is somewhat miniaturized as my painting is less then half the size of the original. For me this painting is my window to dreaming. Remembering the being, inviting me to look inside and accept all there is. I am so attracted to this woman enveloped in Indian yellows….. it takes me to summer when I am in winter.

Flaming June is a painting by Sir Frederic Leighton, produced in 1895. Painted with oil paints on a 120cm × 120cm (47-by-47-inch) square canvas, it is widely considered to be Leighton’s magnum opus, showing his classicist nature. It is thought that the woman portrayed alludes to the figures of sleeping nymphs and naiads the Greeks often sculpted. This painting takes me to the time when I discovered the Pre-Raphaelite beauty at the Tate Museum. I was impressed and felt the beauty of my ancestors.
