Rusalka 2 (my painting/ moja slika)

The background is inspired by an actual landscape but only partly. The face, the eyes, the skin colour... It turned out exactly the way I wanted it to be. Rusalka 2 ( There is also a Rusalka 3 and if you want, I'll post that one as well).  The only problem is finding a proper place for it in my house... It's a sort of painting that draws attention to  itself. I just find it hard to find what is the right place for her. Any suggestions?

If you scroll down, you'll find a collage on which you can see how the painting looked after I had worked on it for the first time. As you can see, it was pretty much finished. I only added another layer of colour and some finishing touches. In general, it's how I work with oil paints. However, to paint one old church in Starigrad, it took about ten attempts and I'm not even sure I'm sadisfied with it. Sometimes a painting is finished in a few days, sometimes it takes a few weeks... or even a few  months. You never know and that…
