This picture is describing to me a woman from a man's dark shady past. A certain man, when he was younger, knew of a young woman who was beautiful, kind, and full of promise. But when he was with her, he was very cruel and deceitful with her, and made himself the cause of great life injury to her. Now in this picture he has a nightmare about her coming back to be cruel and deceitful with him (the hand in the roses). She's older and wiser (long white hair), and now he can't fool her the way he once did. She's coming back to return injury or expose him; she's very confident of it.
You did a great job at creating an ominous background. You also did a good job at creating a picture that can make some people feel uneasy. Nice work!
