I like how the snail is supporting a candle. And the posture of the character kinda reminds me of aegyptian.

When I painted this I was strongly influenced by his work. I have since moved on, if you look at more recent paintings.

Thanks, Bill. I am sure your artistic talent must be some compensation.
