Queen of Secrets: A Fantasy Painting With Gothic Undertones

Gothic fantasy digital portrait painting by Justin Gedak

Queen of Secrets

Surreal fantasy digital portrait painting by Justin Gedak 2015

Shadows murmur like jaded ghosts
peering in from an ancient place
A lie forgotten
A life untold.

Darkness crowds in
drowning her past
protecting her truth.

What mysteries hide within her fading light?

What turmoils haunt her once peaceful solitude?

She has seen the worst,
and she has made it through.

Tortured secrets locked within her steady heart.

Never to escape.

She stays to rule.
