Thank you! I would think that she would find this world both magical and terrifying. She would probably marvel at our mastery over nature, but be appalled at what we have done to the planet at the same time. We would find her world primitive and bewildering. Still, she might make friends here and miss them if she ever returns to her won world.
This work of yours, is very special, not only because of the beauty of it, or the perfection of the movement (in which the viewer can almost feel the wind and smell both worlds), it's the story it tells. I stared to the door and the character, trying to figure out why she was leaving, and then I saw the castle back there, in flames, and when I saw that castle, I could almost write a book about what was happening to her. This painting touches me in a very particular way.
Thank you! When I was working on the painting I came up with a story to go with it. The story helped the painting to evolve and I could say that the painting helped the story to evolve at the same time. Several of my paintings have background stories like this, but I generally do not share them unless asked to do so...I have noticed that sometimes people will begin to invent stories on their own when they look at a painting and I would much rather let them do this than force them to accept my own tale. We humans seem to be natural story-tellers, and I rather like the idea of encouraging this talent.
When I got the DD for this one, I put up a short version of the background story for this in my Journal entry .fav.me/d6n7bmd, which I took down before you could read it. You could also read an allegory into this painting: it could be about having to come to grips with reality; having to abandon the magical world of childhood for the noise and stink of our modern world.
Anyway, I am glad the painting triggered a bit of creativity in you. I hope you can pass the spark along someday.
