I can't leave without commenting this. I've been many times wondering in your gallery and this painting makes me stop and thinking. How many times i've felt that world is filled with people who are afraid to be them selves and so many times i want to be me but still i'm afraid of people's reactions. What if they don't like the true me what if i dissappoint everybody.
Yes the picture is beautiful and you are one of my favorite artists. I don't know how but somehow you managed to paint the feeling i have almost daily that i always want to be myself

:D Great idea. This is true fantasy.

(Maybe another background? I think you used that violet one already lots of times ...)

Uuuhm ... what is that bell attached to the bird's feather for?
