Lake of Longing - Updated

Image originally done some time ago for Duirwaigh Gallery, for the film and book "Knock at the Door"
A melancholic & romantic piece. She's giving up her pain, wich is symbolized
with the scarf. Sometimes is really hard to let go all the pain, because
at least it define us.
Painted with Photoshop CS3
Close ups here:

Thanks for taking the time of view!! =D

I haven't seen a piece from you I haven't liked but this is one of my favorites. It's... it's just so so good! The softness of it all, it's like it's all softly glowing, radiating ever so slightly, in a dewy milky kind of way that is just gorgeous. She also looks like one of my favorite characters so that helps. 😅

And I seem to recall giving up your pain...means you have to forget....and as you say it shapes us...
Beautiful work

You obviously love your subject very much

Kinda reminds me of the lady of the lake from King Arthur and her knight... She died and gave up the pain of a broken heart and was set out on a pyre on a lake

Really beautiful. I love her long, wavy hair and its color. And her white gown was pretty.
Truly great. :clap:
