A beautiful concept and I like the off-center asymmetric look of the work. The color is good and feels very rich, but since it does seem to be that invoking energy as part of the Dance, shouldn't there be a layer applied in front of the figure to suggest a more dynamic feel to the work. As the figure seems to be in movement as though dancing, perhaps a slight trail on the two pentacles showing their movement is called for as well? Finally, since the Two of Pentacles is a card of balance, and a good omen, I'd probably invert one of the pentacles to show the balance between the spiritual world and the material world. It's a symbolism that some people who are not familiar with the Craft might be uncomfortable with, and is really a matter of taste.

Thank you so much for the thoughtful and insightful critique; you have made some excellent suggestions and I am hoping to revise my work and put them into practice.  The orientation of the pentacles gave me pause and I am still undecided; my original draft had one inverted as I feel this card perfectly epitomises balance and duality as I was looking ahead to the autumnal equinox. I only changed it as I did not want to offend anyone.

Believe me, I understand completely. I've been out of the broom closet for sometime here in Kansas and I still get an occasional hard look when people first notice the pentacle I wear. You learn to roll with it. And I'm glad I was able to give some good feedback on the work, because it really is gorgeous. Happy Mabon!
