The Woodland Family

Ah, what a week. I've been so busy with work (part time, my foot!), the lovely and I were both sick at different points and when I had free time and was healthy I squirreled myself away to work on some custom art for an etsy customer, which I'll share with you all. :)

A wonderful woman bought my horned god painting, which I loved so much after it was finished that I almost unlisted it to keep for myself:




Once she received him, she had asked me if I would make a goddess to complement him. I love when people ask me to do custom work so I accepted and asked for any details she'd like me to include. When I logged in the next day, she had sent me the sweetest message telling me that my horned god reminded her a great deal of her son and asked me if I could render portraits of the rest of her family as horned gods and goddesses. I was so touched I couldn't help but agree!






Her request was that the women have antlers and her other son goat horns and that when all four are grouped together they'll be facing center. She said once she frames them, she'll send me a picture of the grouping. I can't wait to see them all framed together and had a lot of fun working on these, especially since fauns and horned ones are a current recurring theme in my artsy ideas recently.
