Inuit people believe the world will end in ice, not in fire. I tend to agree.

Oil on illustration board, 15x20'. Closeups here.

P.S. Thanks for all the comments and congrats on the mod's choice, guys! I appreciate it! Also, since I forgot to mention it before and everyone's asking: H.C. Andersen's 'Little Matchstick Girl' indeed aided in the creation of this painting. I did not intend to paint the actual character, but the story has been one of my faves since I was a kid, and it played a large part in inspiring this.

OMG This work is brilliant! You should try to contract through a poster company. Those would sell very well!
