I was gonna comment on the fact that it is reminiscent of Gentileschi's painting, but someone already beat me to it. Rats!
Heh, good job, tho!

it's not just the light, but the pose, engaged (and in wonder) with the flame and, still, in places way beyond it. Emerging from an infinite place...

congratulations on the dd...

This is an outstanding piece of artwork. This piece in particular is very Italian Baroque in style. it reminds me of Artemesia Gentileschi. Beautiful work! Thank you for submitting this for the deviantart world to see.
