The moon is out. the Autumn winds whisper through the trees as most of the world is asleep in their beds. But in the wilds a celebration of the Moon, of Máni, the moon personified in Germanic Mythology, is underway around a small fire. His priestess is free of earthly woes as she crafts herContinue reading “A Celebration of Máni”

She is back, rejected from Ginen, the abode of spirits, and seeking the return of her Govi, which, in Vodou, is a a ceremonial object used in the ritual reclaiming of the immortal aspect of a human spirit (gwobonanj) after death. She has been wronged, neglected by the living, for it is one year andContinue reading “Marie Vodou”
Basking in the Light of God (NSFW)
Simple elements, was really just playing with light and camera angles. She pretty much speaks for herself, evoking themes of religion played out in Renaissance art but with a digital and more realistic bend.
I was lying on the battlefield, life slowly bleeding out. The sounds of battle faded to the moans of the dying with a chorus of vultures in the background. As the sun set on what was surely my last day in this world, and the cold damp of night settled in my bones, she cameContinue reading “The Choice”
Moon Goddess in a Box
What’s it about? Err, I don’t know. I may be a bit tipsy with creating this artwork – I do know that I started out with the idea of using the human body as a frame for what’s in the picture, so, goal achieved. She’s a regal woman constrained by the borders of the art,Continue reading “Moon Goddess in a Box”
It’s the Vietnam War, but with magic! As someone who has studied Vietnamese (Hanoi dialect), one of the cool cultural components that comes along with the language is that the Vietnamese believe in ghosts of ancestors wandering around in the jungle – and, if you extrapolate this to the rich Asian lexicon of mythology (Hint,Continue reading “Modern Magicfare”
A reoccurring theme in my #artwork is temptation. This is a combination of a pose I saw in passing and one of my favorite movies, the #witch so I #created a take on the #temptation by #blackphillip – post rendering it was pixelated due to the the #lowlight and it was #dark so I hadContinue reading “Live Deliciously?”

Parity Lost: Not quite how the angels thought the end of the war arrive.
Mary and the Last Sinner
I had an entire long post ready to go but thanks to an app crash, I’ll give you the highlights. I wasn’t going to share this painting. I didn’t think it worthy, but people started to like it, so, here we are. There’s two themes going on here. First, there’s a piece of Papayrus atContinue reading “Mary and the Last Sinner”
I went ahead and signed this one because I don’t know when, if ever, I’ll get back to it. It’s a nature piece, dealing with the mystical forces surrounding the entity that is Mother Nature, both from a pagan and artistic perspective. She’s never really portrayed as a creature one wants to be around; rather,Continue reading “Earth Mother”
Test of Faith
A cold winter evening, somewhere in the city. On the roof of a nondescript tenement, a life is about to end… or is it about to begin? Every artist does a religious painting at some point (at least the ones I follow), so here is my contribution to that lexicon of beauty.
