I have to say, I have been bouncing all around your gallery today, and I have favourited both this painting and another (Sqaq L-Infern: Anita+Jeanelle). I wish to finally comment, because I'm terrible at leaving my remarks on pieces, and really need to fix that.
So, what I wanted to say was, I love the interaction your subjects have - either between several people, objects, creatures, et cetera, or between the subject and the viewer. There is a definite spark in this interaction, and it's captivating. There are similarities between this particular piece and My Sweet Metropolitan Daphne (what with the woman and the bird), but I do like this one better because of the mystery surrounding the settlement.
All in all, I must say, you are amazingly talented, and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of your works.
I barely even have words for this Apart from your amazing style, its the small details about this that I love. The eggs on the table, the way you captured the woman's skin, her tightly pursed almost-smirk... it really engages the viewer to wonder what this settlement is about! I love this to death
