Are you referencing to The Outsiders and to The Heroes of Olympus......? Either way, this is beautiful. 'Scuse me while I go erase all of my art.............

As soon as I saw the title my mind immediately thought "Stay gold, Ponyboy."

Didn't Johnny said "Nothing gold could stay???" or maybe he didn't say it....

Is there any chance that this beautiful work is based off of Hazel from "Heroes of Olympus" by Rick Riordan? Because, frankly, this perfectly fits her description, aside from the fact that Hazel is younger than this woman appears to be. The gorgeous, dark color of her skin, the gold eyes, the almost golden brown hair...either way, incredible work!!

Even though she didn't stay golden...

...the sweetness of brown sugar is revealed.  :O

Amazingly beautiful image... her face, hair, lightning... her eyes are just amazing.

I was just wondering... is this your own idea... or is there any picture or real person you 've painted... (just asking out of curiosity)?

Instant Fav !!!  :D
