This appeals to my somewhat darkish art roots. Back in high school I had my own "Girl from Rose" painting too. Though mine was a fairy, because that seems to be my brain's default. I loooove how this has a "dark goddess" mood. Her skin reminds me of an Indian goddess, but her "halo" (there's another term for that in the art world, I forgot it) and the cathedral window call back to Mary "Queen of Heaven."
Thank you very much for your kind comment. Indeed, I was inspired by several things while doing this work, though it should have been darker in the beginning. Turned out completely different.
