Part of a series I am working on.
Self Portrait.

Aoibheall is a famous fairy queen of County Clare, Ireland.
Her name has been translated as "bright", "sparkling", and "beautiful", all things which are generally attributed to goddessess.
Aibheall is said to have a magical golden harp which was only heard by those of Clann UíBriain, whoever heard its music did not live long afterwards. For this reason she has been referred to as "banfháidh Om Briain", meaning "prophetress of Clann UíBriain".
It was that harp Cuchulain heard the time his enemies were gathering against him, and he knew by it that his life was near its end.

Another splendid shot, everything about it is just great: the lighting, the color toning, the perfect focus, your expression, hairstyle... And thank you for the short story in the description, it's very interesting.

This series is excellent, keep up this brilliant work !

Bye ! :) (Smile)

Brilliant my friend. You have the vision, the eye, and the skills to craft astonishing works that truly are worthy of being in a prestigious gallery, and more importantly, give voice to the visions of your choice of concept in ways that are easy for the viewer to grasp, to engage in, and to become a part of.
