What a great character study. The reflection of the character in the sword edge is excellent detail. Love the flying cherry blossom petals around her. What a famous person you choose to paint. Outstandingly strong and very highly regarded by her Lord. She was an exceptional human being in real life.

Tomoe Gozen was a female samurai – one of the very rare examples of her kind - living in the 12th – 13th century AD.

"The Heike Monogatari says the following of Tomoe…
 
"…Tomoe was especially beautiful, with white skin, long hair, and charming features. She was also a remarkably strong archer, and as a swordswoman she was a warrior worth a thousand, ready to confront a demon or a god, mounted or on foot. She handled unbroken horses with superb skill; she rode unscathed down perilous descents. Whenever a battle was imminent, Yoshinaka sent her out as his first captain, equipped with strong armor, an oversized sword, and a mighty bow; and she preformed more deeds of valor than any of his other warriors." 

(Tale of the Heike, translated by McCullough, pg. 291)"


Kindly,

Grant
