I painted this yesterday (although I had been chipping away at the concept for longer) as a last minute entry for the Ghost Book. I didn’t get in, but that’s fine :3 I’m a little disappointed – but part of putting yourself out there is getting rejected sometimes! I’m still super happy I painted it. I needed this. And I love the result so much. 

As usual the scan can’t compare to the original, but even with that I think I did a fairly good job with the scan.

Pencil sketch and daniel smith watercolors.

To me this looks exactly how I picture a young Hel, just after she’s been taken from her father and sent to Helheim

I love this.  Beautiful piece!

I love this, the imagery is haunting and beautiful. I want to give her a hug.


About darkbookworm13

I am a proud mom to 3 beautiful girls, and married to the love of my life. I have been a practicing Witch since the summer of 2003, having studied many different paths over the years, ranging from Wicca, Goddess only worship (courtesy of StarHawk), Eclectic Paganism, Kitchen Witchcraft, Norse Paganism, Hearthcraft, Spiritual Luciferianism, and more. I have worked with the Futhark runes, Brian Froud's Faeries Oracle deck, Tarot decks, and I am currently working on a customized divination set based on collected items. I like to work with herbs, and gardening. I crochet and make handicrafts like wood burned items, paintings, drawings, toys, and hand sewn doll clothes for my daughters. The only title I call my spiritual path is Witchcraft, as using magic entwines deeply with the worship of the Gods who call me Their own. My Patron deity is Loki, who has chosen me as His kin.
