Girl in boat with snake on lap and wand. Take Me To The Party - could be the command given by the figure to her boat as she holds a wand aloft ( what a way to make an entrance !) or perhaps the snake had made the request ? Maybe if you stare at this painting long enough you'll come to your own conclusion. Also : could it be both ? :
Snake to witch: "Take me to the party!"
Witch to boat: "Take me to the party!"
(metallic gold is featured throughout this little gem on the snake, wand and edging)
