“Daphne” is a powerful portrait of a feminine figure. Powerful because of her confident appearance, looking the observer directly in the eye. Daphne was a mythological figure, known for her absolute beauty and her connection to rivers, fountains, springs and other waters. This theme is easily recognizable in the blue colors. For example at the top of the painting, where Dominic created a beautiful rich color blue, reminding us of the darkest depths of the ocean.
