"The Ecstasy" is a modern take on the idea of the sculpture "The Ecstasy of St. Theresa" by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. In Martsolf's work the female is nude, but open to the same type of experience as the saint, raining down from heaven.

If you go to the original oil painting product note that the last detail photo is overexposed on purpose so that the subtle gradations of shading can be clearly seen. The piece drew much attention at an invitational show in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA as noted in the images included in the original oil painting product selection.
The original drawing was created with pen on paper. The coloration phase of the work was completed by creating several copies of the sketch and then coloring the background using colored pencils. The transfer of the original design to canvas was accomplished with a computer projector, projecting the original drawing onto the blank canvas whereby it could be redrawn at the proper size to fit the dimensions of the canvas.
