Alyssa Monks’ Oil Painting Series — a beautiful fusion of woman’s portrait and the forest

Alyssa Monks, an artist based-in Brookyn, paints a woman’s portrait in the midst of the forest, creating a ghostly coalescence of ethereal, gorgeous face and the beauty of nature. The stunning blending of these two elements provides an environment cloaked with spiritual mystery that seems to depict a goddess inhabiting the forest. Please scroll down and explore the selected pieces below. Each portrait is eerie, mystical and surreal — beautifully rendered with superb creativity and imagination.
