When I see this picture now, all I can think about is Loreena McKennitt's song. Painting and song are both beautiful.

This IS stunning. Haunting.

Collin, I'm unfamiliar with the song. If it's anything like the painting I'm missing out on something good.

Suzanne, indeed. There is both a captivating and ominous quality about it.

You are, Nick. Go over to Loreena's site or see if you can hear a sample on YouTube or iTunes. It's so beautiful.
