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!

Glad you like it. I didn't know about it myself until recently, but I enjoy it as well.

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]
