the Golden Compass always reminded me of the snow queen Frazetta did.

This immediately reminded me of the movie "The Golden Compass." Take the young heroine and her armored bear companion; win the war against the church and move the storyline 10 years into the future.

Voila, your painting!

I had similar thoughts, though I was trying to live up to Greg Manchess' "Above the Timberline" painting.
