I'm in Effy Wild's Workshop - Moonshine .. It's all about the feminine devine. This week we studied Maive the Irish goddess ..She is the goddess of "Intoxication" .. She liked to screw around a lot!! Took many husbands.. Drank Mead a lot.. and in the end was killed.. She was a warrior.. Google her for a lot more information. I just did the short abridged version. LOL
Here is what Effy wrote about Moonshine so it's better explained
Moonshine is a seasonally driven spiritual painting program that will enfold you in the stories, power, and beauty of the feminine divine. Moonshine runs in quarterly sessions with a Summer (May, June, July), Autumn (August, September, October), Winter (November, December, January), and Spring (February, March, April) session, each lasting three months (or approximately 12 weeks).
I'm in the Summer Session so far..
I painted a picture of Maive.. That's a crow in the background.. ROFL!! I sure had a hard time with that beak! LOL
I'm having a hard time when I mask something to keep my original proportions.. Like her leg is a little off. This won't be for sale that's for sure! I did have a lot of fun painting it.. It's mixed media as the background and most of the gal is watercolor, and the tree and some other elements are acrylics.
I'm joining Paint Party Friday.. Head on over to see some fabulous artwork..
Hey! Thanks for stopping by.
