I updated my zazzle shop with Greek gods and goddesses. Characters from myths and folklore are some of my favorite subjects to paint.
Pan is my man and Kallisto is one with the bears. I believe she was the first bear- shapesifter in Greek myths.
We all know the story of Persephone. This was something different for me since I used combination of watercolors, watercolor pencils and colored pencils to finish the piece.
I like the way she is looking into distance. Who knows what she is thinking. Was this before or after the deal made with Hades.
You can find all my Greek mythology inspired paintings as postcards from here.
Time to launch some of my new favorite designs. Despite the fact that we have such things as Twitter and Instagram nothing can never beat an actual greeting card. I love the sea and the ocean. I was actually born very near Finland´s western coast.
"The Great Wave". This painting was especially greated for my latest art exhibition last summer. You can find these cards and all my nautical designs here.
We are few months away from Autumn Equinox. I don´t know about you guys but here in Finland nights are getting darker and it is more rainy. I don´t mind since Autumn in my favorite time of the year. I have added many Autumn Equinox/Mabon greeting card designs to my Zazzle store. Mabon is actually the name of the Irish pagan festival, but is widely used by many neo-pagans. In Finland pagan name of the holiday is syyspäiväntasaus which literally means Autumn Equinox. Lol. I hope to expand designs to cover more festivals in different langauges.
Here are some of my favorite Mabon designs.
Fairy is made of dandelion seeds. There is nothing like full-autumn moon.
Autumn leaves, pumpkins and lanterns. My idea of heaven on earth.
You can find these cards and many more from my zazzle-store.
In Greek mythology seasons change when Persephone spends half of the year in the underworld with his husband Hades and rest of the year on earth with her mother Demeter, the goddess of grain.
Watercolor and colored pencils on acid free watercolor paper.
