Finally! It's is finished and I am pretty happy with the outcome. As the painting developed, it began to have a sort of Pandora's box theme. The disembodied (or maybe decapitated) head floating in the water for me represents Pandora and the box. The black mass writhing out of her mouth represents all things evil in the world. The golden background represents that the sun is up and the world is still bright, but not for long if the eye less Pandora is allowed to blindly spread hatred and disease throughout the world. The woman on the right looks to you, the viewer.
