Artwork Description

This is Orihime from the legend of Tanabata, the daughter of the ruler of the skies.
She wove beautiful cloth along the banks of the milky way. Though hard working, she was lonely and her father set her up with Hikoboshi, the cowhearder star. The pair fell in love and got married but she then forgot her duties of weaving cloth and he let his cowherds wander the night sky. As punishment, she was separated from her lover and from then on could only meet once a year when a flock of magpies formed the bridge over the milky way...

Beautiful watercolor, nice ambiance with the clouds. The only little critisism I could make is that the girl is a bit too straight in her posture.
But it's a nice pic.

Art at its best.
