This is Kostroma, done for the March Goddess by Request over on my Patreon. She's a Russian earth Goddess Who can be described as a maiden or as a witch in the fields. In a song She is said to fall asleep underneath a birch tree to be awakened in the springtime with the Earth. I have put Her under the birch trees as She wakes up; it's winter on the left and spring on the right, and the Sun of the vernal equinox shines overhead.
The style is inspired by traditional Russian embroideries. It's acrylic on canvas board, about nine by twelve inches.
I've put this art up on both prints and cards as usual.
