I really like this painting. I think the artist did a very good job at illustrating a harmonic relationship between forces of nature. I also think the painting represents a relationship between light and darkness, the light being represented by the celestial female figure and the dark crow. However, it may also represent a dream one may have from a possible love lost; that perhaps this crow loved someone dear to him but lost that love and now he dreams about that love every night in depression. The linewark is very good. He did a great job contrasting the colors and drawing the woman's hair. All in all it's just a beautifully designed and subjectively symbolic painting and I have no complaints about it at all.
Wow, that is so moving... Stunning impression - the beast's eyes really seem longing while gazing at her, as his long claws pierce the glowing, melancholy dream image. The beast has his own grandeur and beauty, as well - love the falling petals. Amazing work.
