Sunday Gnomedays 12-24-18/Day 23, “Pomegranate”

Featuring my Gnomish Persephone with an Elven Hera – what better than an Elf for the Queen of the gods? And what better context for this scene than the symbol of Persephone’s choice to marry Hades?

Day 20, “Gold”

….anybody else think that Elf is gonna be toast in a moment?

Day 22, “Dragon”

(Had to draw something sweet after the humor of the Gold prompt.) “Tock the Gnome” Elves are well aware of Dragons and generally get along with them, on an individual elf-to-dragon basis. Once again, there is MUCH of her own world that Tock has yet to discover!

Prompt list from @monicamarinhoart.

Sabbat Sketches – Mabon (Persephone)

Blessed Mabon everyone 🍂

In my practice, this is when Persephone heads back to the Underworld – not fully in Her power as Queen there, yet, but beginning Her descent and Her reunion with Hades.

Life is a part of Her, the rebirth and the green, but so is the harvest and the falling leaves. The oncoming cold and the care of lost, broken souls. She must miss that part of Herself.

May Her reclaiming of that role be smooth and welcome, may Her Bountiful Mother let Her go with acceptance, if not understanding.

And may Their love be strong as ever, and be our reminder to take care of each other.

Sabbat Sketches – Beltane (Persephone)

sabbat_sketches___beltane__persephone__by_rachelillustrates-dcag0o2

Blessed (slightly belated) Beltane, everyone!

Welcome Spring, and blessed be it’s Queen, who loves us SO much that she leaves her own beloved for months in order to give us flowers and sunshine and green.

(I was really struck about that while I was drawing this – yes, Spring is Her domain as it was before She married Hades, but Her Love for us is palpable to me. Surely She misses Him – and on this day of marriage of Lady and Lord, I had to show Him up looking up at Her, too – but Her devotion to us, in return to OUR devotion, felt so very strong and true as I was drawing this. Aaaaaaand it came out MUCH more impressive than I expected! So it gets a proper scan.)
