Lady with Seven Stars

Hmmm, a little something different from me today. I've had this imagery in my head for a couple of weeks now. Kind of a convoluted explaination on what it is about I guess:

I'm participating in a Bible study that is now focussing on Revelation. While we were working through the first bit (Rev 1:10 - 16) I was doodling and was totally absorbed with the imagery of seven stars (Rev 1:16).

So I drew seven stars. Of course, being human, I had to draw a parallel to the earlier reference of the seven churches (Rev 1:11). Well of course, the church is Christ's chosen bride (Eph 5:25-27) I had to draw a young blushing lady wearing the stars in an almost old fashioned bridal head dress....

Okay, this isn't hugely deep theology but I figured it would be interesting to explain how this picture developed.

You can find her on auction here:

Michelle, what an expansive piece! There is so much movement and quiet power in this painting, it feels barely contained by the canvas.
