I've always been mesmerized by the Aurora Borealis, this beautiful atmospheric phenomenon that manifests itself in the skies.
As reference for this digital painting I chose a picture of the young model Lauren Burch, taken by Brian Lawson; her fine facial features and the innocence in her eyes were perfect for what I wanted to depict.
"Your karma so colorful, so strong it embraces me.
I just want to be where you are and hold your flames so tight,
inside, Northern Light."
Speaking of which, as one of my dearest Nordic Folk Metal bands which brought so much inspiration to my life, I dedicated them the pendant in the painting, containing references to Midnattsol's logo.
I also found appropriate to include the constellation of Sagittarius blended in the starry sky, for it is the model's zodiac sign and I like to add a bit of personal meaning for the muses that inspires my creations, as a token of my gratitude.
