"Atargatis" Sneak Peek
16x20
oils on wood panel

Details: [link]

A week ago I posted a poll asking, "If I were to do a series of paintings, what theme would people want to see in my style most?" So far the results favor women in mythology, with the second and third most favorable themes being art that follows a story, and then mermaids. So, here is the piece I have started that covers all of these options. I found a beautiful Syrian myth about the goddess, Atargatis, who fell in love with a mortal man. When he died, she dove into a pond in hopes of turning into a fish. Instead, only half of her became a fish, and the rest remained human. Another myth following the same goddess, said that she was born from an egg that was pushed up onto the shore by a fish, and then incubated by a dove. Eventually, variations of the story spread throughout Greece and Rome. These stories are said to be the first to introduce mermaids into mythology.

The Owl Maiden
11"x14"
oils on board
June 25, 2012

Here is the second piece of my "women in mythology" series.

In Welsh mythology, Blodeuwedd is the spring and owl goddess, who represents life and death. Her name means "born of flowers" or "flower face." She was created from nine different floral blooms, but then transformed into an owl as punishment for betrayal.
She is part of a triad associated with the changing phases of the moon. She symbolizes fleeting beauty and the blooming of life that must come full circle through darkness and death. She is night and day, and the passing of seasons from spring to winter.
