More Starmaker

"When we looked down into the valley, the ground gave a sigh, then moved upwards and stretched, until a gigantic figure stood in front of a watching sky. Slowly, she turned towards us, and we tried hard to grind time to a halt before we would have to meet her gaze."
— Junik√§lla Honi, traveller

Artist's notes
The plan when painting Starmaker usually is to create a portrait, put it in absurd scale or unreal surroundings, and then add abstract and strange elements until it's creepy enough. I often think her to be clad in white, but I like her in black as well.
