Arina is a portrait based on a combination of Ryan's mother and sister. "The result is an iconic version of the two women," says Ryan. The piece continues his study of the female portrait with the ideals of balancing strength and fragility. "I was inspired by traditional torero costumes, exotic birds and roses from my garden." Piercing brown eyes, lips pursed, delicate rosy skin and dark brown hair parted and in curls. Thickly textured jacket against a backdrop of white roses with yellow centers and tropical birds disguised in the scenery.
