“Evergreen Lady”, 9x12 inches, watercolor and ink with 23k gold leaf accents.
In dark times, we must hold on to a sliver of warmth and light. Evergreens remind us of the eternal quality of our persistence. The darkness will end come the daybreak of hope.
A painting for my mother inspired by her Lady of December, the Goddess that started it all for my Gemstone Goddesses birthstone series. This Lady takes her inspiration from Saint Lucy, whose feast day is today, December 13th. With her, we celebrate bringing light and gifts during the most difficult times.
This painting is the newest addition to my Spirits of Winter series, a set of paintings dedicated to my favorite imagery of the season. The art from this series is only available in my shop for a Limited Time during the holidays (late Oct to Dec).
A few work-in-progress shots. Those Patrons who have joined my Patreon Discord server also got to see glimpses of this painting as she was being made, so be sure to join in the fun there, if you haven't yet:
