The idea for this painting was that in the mirror the reflection of the girl has angel's wings - maybe the mirror is actually another world, or maybe it magically shows her true nature? By placing some arches in the mirror behind the wings I hoped they would blend in a little and not be spotted first thing.

It was fun to design the frame of the mirror and add story telling details like the old key on the floor.

A big thank you for the use of `Elandria 's loverly photo as reference for the figure in this picture. Much appreciated! :hug:

This is like me trying to breaktrough to the true me - like she know that her wings are there cause she can see them, but it's hard to bring them into this world for others to see... :)
truly love this piece :heart:

Thus she began to believe she was an angel.

My favorite line fits this painting perfectly! :meow:

I see a key there, so I'm thinking maybe the mirror is actually a secret door to another world.

You are now cursed. You must send this on or you will be killed. Tonight at 12:00am, by Bloody Mary. This is no joke. So don't think you can quickly get out of it and delete it now because Bloody Mary will come to you if you do not send this on. She will slit your throat and your wrists and pull your eyeballs out with a fork. And then hang your dead corpse in your bedroom cupboard or put you under your bed. What's your parents going to do when they find you dead? Won't be funny then, will it? Don't think this is a fake and it's all put on to scare you because your wrong, so very wrong. Want to hear of some of the sad, sad people who lost their lives or have been seriously hurt by this email?

Annalise [Surname Removed] :She got this email. Rubbish she thought. She deleted it. And now, Annalise dead.

Louise [Surname Removed]: She sent this to only 4 people and when she woke up in the morning her wrists had deep lacerations on each. Luckily there was no pain felt, though she is scarred for life.

Thomas [Surname Removed]: He sent this to 5 people. Big mistake. The night Thomas was lying in his bed watching T.V. The clock shows '12:01am'. The T.V misteriously flickered off and Thomas's bedroom lamp flashed on and off several times. It went pitch black, Thomas looked to the left of him and there she was, Bloody Mary standing in white rags. Blood everywhere with a knife in her hand then disappeared. The biggest fright of Thomas's life.

Warning... NEVER look in a mirror and repeat -'Bloody Mary.Bloody Mary.' Bloody Mary... I KILLED YOUR SON' Is it the end for you tonight! YOU ARE NOW CURSED

We strongly advise you to send this email on. It is seriously NO JOKE. We don't want to see another life wasted. ITS YOUR CHOICE... WANNA DIE TONIGHT? If you send this email to...

NO PEOPLE - You're going to die.

1-5 PEOPLE - You're going to either get hurt or get the biggest fright of your life.

5-15 PEOPLE - You will bring your family bad luck and someone close to you will die.

15 -25 OR MORE PEOPLE - You are safe from Bloody Mary

LOL. I didn't realize that she didn't have wings in her original form until I read your description.

It's beautiful.
