The blocks in the wall suggest one might climb down into the well and safely return. The creatures and skeletons suggest otherwise. And the lady, is she a fellow wisher and seeker, or is she the Lorelei/Siren/Mermaid luring the unwary to their death? The green of her long dress (does it conceal legs or tail?), the green of the lure, and the green of the serpent creature make me think the latter.
I expect there are more steps leading toward the well than returning from it.
When I look at your artworks everything else disappears, I love fantasy world and enjoy being there all day long , the colours you use for your fantasy world are so relaxing and peaceful ...
Reminds me of a story [fragment] I wrote LONG ago. Only there was a huge old serpent in the well, and the bones were of sacrifices offered to him. ;}
