"Nyurgun said that without the help of the spirits, the shaman is no different than a child trying to play the komuz: its strings will produce sounds, but not music.
The teacher is the path, but it is the spirits who form the taiga.
They came for me at my first blood, in the middle of the night. The raw smell of iron had awoken them from their sleep."

Dayaana's story will be featured among those of other wise women in my upcoming A Compendium of Witches, a project supported by my amazing Patreon community
The Kickstarter launch will be on the eve of Samhain (30th of October).

Very good piece! I like how you uplit her face, but made it serene instead of spooky. Everything ties together really well in color and composition.
