Some Recent Commissions

This commission thing seems to be working out, so I've decided to keep taking them for now. I spent most of the holiday season painting Muses as I got a commission for all Nine. Here are a few of my favorites from that set.

First, Ourania, the Muse of astronomy, with Stargazer lilies in Her hair:

Melpomene, Muse of tragedy:

And of course my personal favorite Muse (well, duh), Thalia, Muse of comedy:

For another commission I did an Asherah I quite like, with the Tree of Life embroidered on Her tunic:

And for a different commission this Ereshkigal, which may be my favorite one so far:

I seem to be rather obsessed with that panneaux format (though not all commissions have been those proportions). And oddly enough, doing a bunch of pieces in an old familiar style that still has plenty yet to explore has given me lots of ideas for other styles. I wouldn't have thought that's how that works. But it's been inspirational, and is starting (I think) to build some momentum.

These are all SO stunning! I've always loved your artistic interpretations of the Divine.

Thank you! I'm having quite a bit of fun with these.
