Beautiful- the haziness around the hands is really lovely. I love the lighting and how you captured it- makes me want to start painting again :P

beautiful man, im so glad you use oil and canvas. the painting is beautiful, it captures something sweet , gentle, blissful. It seems so much more deeper though. i really like this.

Wow. The lighting is amazing. I love how you've simplified it slightly.

I was gonna comment on the fact that it is reminiscent of Gentileschi's painting, but someone already beat me to it. Rats!
Heh, good job, tho!

it's not just the light, but the pose, engaged (and in wonder) with the flame and, still, in places way beyond it. Emerging from an infinite place...

congratulations on the dd...
