14" x 10.5". Acryla gouache & watercolor on paper.
In the dales dwells, the prescient Dís, from Yggdrasil’s ash sunk down, of elven race, Idun by name, the youngest of Ivaldi’s elder children. -Hrafnagaldr Óðins, Benjamin Thorpe’s translation
This painting has been on many adventures. I put on the first brush strokes in the mountains of North Carolina, in hours I snatched in the early morning before we hit the trails, and in the evening by lantern light with campfire smoke blowing in my eyes. I brought the painting home to Texas and finished it, only to have Rebecca tell me that it wasn't finished at all.
After more hours of love and frustration, here it is. I'm once again calling it finished.
