This is a new painting I've just finished called "Song of Songs". I spent a few weeks working on this and I'm pretty happy with how it came out. The title refers to the Thai text in the halo, which is an excerpt from the Song of Solomon in the Old Testament:
Who is this that grows like the dawn,
As beautiful as the full moon,
As pure as the sun,
As awesome as an army with banners?
(Thanks to the enchanting Dianne Garcia for the calligraphy help!)
