I really love this painting. It offers an very interesting style, and it's almost as if there are several types of styles in the painting. Absolutely amazing. The use of the color red makes a statement and adds life to the painting. Plus the birds in the background, transgressing from black to white, to gold, to black, makes an interesting story. You did a really great job on this. Congrats on the DD!
Thank you very much. You are accurate on the mixing of styles! I borrowed from my various favourite art styles like art noveau, fine art and kimono embroidery. The name Otohime refers to a japanese goddess who transformed from human into dragon, after giving birth to a child. Thus the swallows (known for their great maneuverability) indicate a tranformation/ascension! I am very happy you recognised this. The music is another dimension to it... Thanks again!
