Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! I love a composition that takes you off down a story... my good lady and I were looking at this... I think it has an odd "come-hither" creepy sexiness about it; she thinks it's the moment before she puts on the veil to go to a wedding where no-one knows what she is.... fabulous piece of visual story telling!
you know it's said that one's personality you can see in it's room, or that people and their dogs look similar. in same manner i would say that the character of this picture and the interior are from the same planet, that's a harmony
