Goddess #1 and nightmares

There's a new challenge in town called 13 Goddesses in 13 weeks and I'm playing along. The pantheon for each week is already selected so we can plan ahead.:)

The toughest thing for me is to find the right goddess to portray. It takes up most of my time. After that, I sketch it fairly quickly. I'm concentrating more on the figure than on the face as you can see. I think it would be a good lesson for me to make my girls more dynamic.

For the first week we have a choice of a Celtic or Nordic goddess. I chose Freya, the Nordic goddess of love, beauty, fertility, gold, witchcraft, war and death. Freya assists other deities by allowing them to use her feathered cloak and she's often portrayed to be riding a chariot pulled by two cats.
I’m also linking this one to The Butterfly Effect. The theme is dreams/nightmares and the two reoccurring nightmares of mine when I was growing up was going to school naked and being chased by someone or something and then flying away just before they could get me. I think having Freya's wings would make it easier for me to escape. :)

  11. Hi Natasha. A very lovely goddess she is, indeed. I love her beautiful red hair and subtle smile.

    By the way, if you come by my blog, I think you'd have something to be smiling about too. :))

  14. I've never had the naked dream. I think I'd very much enjoy riding in a chariot pulled by 2 cats. I might like that even more than having wings.

  15. I love the expression on her face - calm and at peace, yet confident and solid in her personality! I'm having lots of fun looking at the amazing creativity from all participating in the 13 Goddesses in 13 Weeks!
