The detail and passion that has been imbued into this piece is just amazing. The forest and river that is in the background completes the scene. The mist and huminity of the background adds to the overall emotion of the piece. I feel that this world is real and the female character is truely a part of the magick of the world. The scene shows that there is a strength and understanding of the natural world around her that she holds that people don't completely understand. Her red hair and white skin accent each other. To me it shows that she misunderstood, yet she is her own person; redhead's usually are their own person. Showing that she is in the middle of using magick to regain a key, for whatever purpose, adds to my impression of her as a magick user. The red roses on the left side of the scene, the character's right, shows that she is passionate and loving towards her goal. The critters, like the mouse, is a nice touch because it shows that she attracts Nature to her living being. The lush forest that surrounds her, I think, shows that she a part of the magic that balances the world around her. She is truely a magical being that cares for the world around her. Great Job!
