Surprise and bewildered but also exceptionally happy, this elf woman has just discovered her destiny as it was revealed to her in the form of a necklace releasing the Power of Ages to aid in her in her struggle against evil. I always try to present a story in my art, to make people think about what there are looking at and hopefully to inspire the imagination. I know that is too much to hope for at the moment but this picture in particular was a chance for me to experiment with light and dark. I think however that this piece requires greater contrast than I have managed to achieve. She awaits your constructive opinion.
