Thank you so much. She's portrayed so often as an ugly hag, that I wanted to show her differently.

in every movie I have seen with Medusa in t she has always been ugly. I like your picture a lot it's one of the best I have seen.

I LOVE Medusa!

Thanks! I've always believed that Medusa should be portrayed as beautiful. She was the most beautiful of the Gorgons and what more fitting punishment for her vanity that her beauty turn men to stone.

Her eyes are drawing me into the picture...

Medusa is (almost) always portrayed as being ugly, and I have never agreed with that. This makes me like this already beautiful picture even more.

:::smiles::: Beautiful piece of work.

Art at its best.
