a commissioned painting

Here’s one I’ve been working on, Saint Melangell who is the patron saint of rabbits. The rabbits have meaning for the person who made the request. Can you tell it’s a combination of Botticelli and Klimt? Thank you very much. People are my weak point as I don’t paint them very much, but it was such an interesting request that I wanted to give it a try. I like all the gold in the background, and I think it might need even more. Her face needs a little bit of tweaking, too. It looks very flat in this photo, I didn’t think it looked quite like that in person. Overall, I’m happy with it.
