As previously posted looooooong ago in WIP form:
This was inspired by Emily Carding’s “Faery Craft”– specifically the section on Faery Zodiac. I fall in the “dryad” section, so of course the tale of Eurydice sparked wonder in me – I’d heard it before, of course, but this time I wondered what her existence is like AFTER Orpheus loses her again. She’s still in the Underworld, after all, and I can’t imagine that a strong, fae woman such as herself would just wait around until her husband shows back up.
Since my gnosis of Persephone includes Her care for damaged, hurting souls – Sketch – Persephone and the Dark Heart – I imagine that after her “rescue” is unsuccessful, Eurydice finds comfort in the care of Persephone, having to mourn her loss of life again, but also wanting to move on. And through that, she finds new purpose in however a creature of the trees would still be able to reach out to nature. Through roots, through growing, nurturing seeds in the darkness of the soil. And maybe through that, her beloved bard can still feel her presence too, and have faith that they WILL be reunited even if his desperate plan didn’t work out.
(Throwing my hat in for female autonomy AND True Love, as always ❤ )
I am very, very satisfied in my heart that this piece is finished. Not the least of which because I finally got to feature Persephone in Her “Queen of the Underworld” gown, and that this is another Faerie-devotional piece after not much time to devote to such things! I very much hope you enjoy it, too.
As it says ❤
“Guardian of the Road,” for my Dad.
“Branch Haven,” for my father-in-law (he who makes all the lovely woodworking for my wife’s shop, btw – lladyllama.com/ ).
Again, happy day to anyone celebrating it!
Happy Sunday Gnomedays again, everyone ❤
Having fun with loose colored pencil drawings lately, apparently. Also, dude Gnome this time in honor of Father’s Day. Still remarkably feminine, but yes. Dude. Happy Day to any fathers celebrating out there!
Time again 🙂 This time, in honor of a lovely friend of mine who is moving forward into more and more amazingness (which this time, means she is actually physically moving).
Helen, may I always be that crazy Gnome lady you know, and may YOU always follow your dreams and your heart.
(And everybody send her good vibes!)
Drawn for my Mama and my mother-in-law this day, Mother’s Day ❤
“A Mother’s Heart Inspires”
“Batcycle, with Flowers”
(Anytime there’s a bat involved, you can bet its for my Mom-in-law 😀 )
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mama’s out there, of all and any kinds!
