I'm on the fence about this painting. It was intended to be a piece for the Proserpine story I'm working on - possibly even the cover. It depicts the main character - Merk, under the spell of Lady Ferrell, an antagonist who appears later in the story. It has a very different feel from the other paintings for the series - so I'm not sure about including it. What I do like about it is the comic book sort of feel. It also connects back to those saucy space girl paintings that were such a staple of this blog.
It is also a tribute to a well known illustrator who is a hero of mine. This image really mimics one of his most brilliant covers for Moonshadow. If you are familiar with his work, you will recognize the reference.
