The inks and acrylics used to create the portrait lay delicately on the handmade Khadi paper, giving it an airy and light feel. The texture of the paper gives the piece a whimsical, dreamy quality and complements Chloris' flowy, ethereal look. The painting has a certain grace and charm about it, and it truly captures the majestic beauty of the minor Goddess.
Chloris is a minor goddess of nature in Greek mythology. She was the daughter of a river god and she was the goddess of flowers, vegetation, and new growth. She was known for turning mortals into flowers and plants for fun. She was also believed to be the mother of Amaranth, a flower that is said to never fade or die. According to some sources, she was also the mother of Neaira, the goddess of the Heavens. She is sometimes represented with a crown of flowers and is associated with the spring season.
