    I love the colors and composition that has a very soft light and texture very warm, it inspires me to this picture, a hug :)

    I can understand why you see her as your muse, she embodies the spirit of your vision, you bring out the best in each other. I love where you're images send me in my head, they put the magical back into the mundane. Pure art....and your attention to details is staggering, which pleases me no end being a pedant for details myself! :-)

    Superb, I love the shadows cast on her back and the slightly frayed edges to the wings.
