This piece is very special to me. I had previously done a piece of the Triple Moon Goddesses, but as explained before, I had been asked to keep it an exclusive piece, which I continue to honor. In the meantime, I've had several inquiries about selling prints of that piece, and I knew I would need to re-visit that subject again. Along came last year's Winter Solstice, and I really felt like it was time to have a go again - once again as gift material - but also this time using techniques that I've developed in my work since then. The original piece was hand colored with Prismacolor pencils and tempera paint. This new version is hand drawn and inked, but colored digitally.
As I worked on this piece, one piece of music that I played on heavy rotation for inspiration was a beautfiul song by the amazing and incredible independent singer and songwriter, Casey Stratton, entitled "The Maiden, The Mother and The Crone," from his fantastic 2009 Holiday album, A Winter Moon, which is available for download purchase and free sampling at his website. I think the mood and timbre of his song really helped me capture the magic I wanted to instill in this piece.
I also really wanted the colors of this piece to be vibrant and really reflect the essences of these Goddesses, as well as weave a mysterious and mystical mood that inspires, comforts, and soothes the soul.
This piece is available for purchase as greeting cards, post cards, prints, and posters at my Redbubble.com store. The piece is also available directly from me as an 11" by 14" print on metallic photo paper via the "Contact Me" form at the top-left of this page to request that specific print directly from me for $40 + Shipping, which includes Priority Mail & Tracking.
