Although this work isn't the most originial, I have favorited other scenes that use smiliar coloring for their scenes, I find it to be bery impactful. The technique of this piece allows the overall piece to become very emotional. The sense of choas among the colors gives off a sense of the uncontrolable nature of our own lives. The woman's facial expression just amplifies this very sense, almost like she is feeling it as well as experience the loss of control at the same time. The snow laden ground adds to overall atmosphere of choatic despair because many people consider the cold of winter to be a part of one's own despair and depression. Where nature cannot be in full bloom. Therefore, either in hybernation or is in death. How despairing is that? Yet there is hope. The hope of the glowing white lights of innocence and purity with the white lights that are hovering over the puckets on the lower left side of the photo, above the bucket. I Think you did an excellent job.
The artist has represented a with maturity and class, she is older and represents what is best about her time of the year. In a beautiful dress cut to fit her wonderful form. This Winter Maiden has seen more than one winter but she is always classy and brings her own special magic where ever she goes. The whole picture is magical with a little bit of mortality too it, you can tell this lovely Winter Maiden is not young, but will enjoy every Winter until she can no longer participate in her reveries anymore. I think the artist has chosen a background that really fits her personality, from the magic freely flowing to the crystal ball, and how comfortable to come back to a place where things do not change. Next year the Winter Maiden will show up in front of the Fairy Door and the game starts all over again.
