Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

A pastel drawing on black Khadi handmade paper of a mystical scene depicting a serene woman with closed eyes, in deep water catching brightly coloured golden fishes, so bright that their colour is reflected onto her hands and face. Her luxurious hair flows into the water.

To her left on the horizon is a little boat, with a figure aboard under a crescent moon. A suggestion of light also radiates from within the boat. I have pencilled in a hint of the land to the right of the boat.

This image is inspired by one of my very favourite artists Odilon Redon.
