"...How I became mindless, part of a dark power that was black, but made of many colors, something warm, blind, painful, emotionless; something direct and deep, without sympathy." ~Beth Powning

An ominous pall haunts her lovely face. Superb piece!

I think this is better than the Rossetti, and he is one of my top 5 painters ever.

I don't peronally like Rossetti much, but his Annunciation always struck me as so amazing - despite the winky perspective.

Yes, that is one of my favorites of his as well. I like the symbolism he used and the colors to corresspond with that. Your face is wonderful though, you can feel her emotion.

amazing and gorgeous. she seems to have the texture of softness, of velvet and you want to console her...but too ethereal, she cannot be touched in this sadness. <3
