This reminds me of "Gretchen am Spinnerade" by Schubert. The colors used and the setting fit the song well.

I just went to look up this song and I love it. It absolutely could work with this painting. Thanks!

What a great illustration from one of the best stories! I love how tiny she looks in that great big room. And the scenery out the window...makes me wonder what's out there. :D

That story scared me so much! But I loved the grandmother! I love the use of light, it is a very striking image, really stark and beautiful!

I really like this piece, it reminds me of a couple stories I know. Who's Irene, by the way?

Irene is the Princess in "The Princess and the Goblin." The namesake of the lady spinning. It's a great book! Go read it!

It's by George MacDonald! He wrote many amazing books. And you can indeed get it on amazon; that's where I got my copy. Here:[link]

first, congrats on the DD,

I really like the textures on the floor and wall. How you have the light coming in the window and reflecting off the princess and floor is really good. When I look at this I feel lonely and sad. Good work.

Oh, you should absolutely republish your own version of "The Princess and the Goblin" with your illustrations. Since it's out of copyright, you could certainly do that with no problem. Then you could sell it on Amazon as an e-book, or even a printed version through their self-publishing options.
