I can clearly see the influence of Russian and other East European forms of religious iconography in this work. This is a very brave use of the vivid red from her hair across the composition, but then another trademark of your work is your use of hair to symbolize love, death and hope etc.
This piece succeeds on many levels. The composition, texture, and palette work well together. The sense of a strong light source is really effective. The fantastical element of implied symbolic relationship between the bird and figure is very intriguing. Nice work!
