A classic rock tune that still is being listened to and on the the radio. I have done many musical tributes in my musical carrer to Carlos Santana and this song, I play at every event. People everywhere know it and love to hear it. TJ

Mystery and intrigue is captured in this expressive painting.
A tale of drama and a bit of spell binding witchery seems to
define the piece. You have really captured the haunting mood
of the music and lyrics. Very well done! :D

Below is the Carlos Santana "Black Magic Woman" version for
those who might care to listen. :D

Cool. I like your interpretation. Seems less sinister to me than the images this song conjured for me over the years.

Normally I would see this song set around a fire, maybe even dancing around a cauldron at night. . . all witchy and gypsy, flashing eyes and leering, salivating, sweaty, predatory, through the foggy lens of being under her spell, tryin' to make a devil out of me. . .

Your very valid though different interpretation shows daylight, sharp clarity. . . with her at an non-threatening distance with a moat in between. I might even see her as a white magic, good guy magic user on a quest kind of woman. . . It feels like it's only nominally about the woman as the focal point and more about the gorgeous rock music standard for the sake of the super cool rock music, maybe as played at an open air concert in daytime or on a car radio. And there's not one thing wrong with that take. Very valid. A sort of Galadriel in her youth kind of presence for me.

It always fascinates me to see what other people are thinking, especially through their paintings.

Nice one, Mr Jazz.
