Jewel-Glad (Menglod). Acryla gouache & acrylic. 24" x 24".
The finished painting based on my drawing from the Month of Love challenge. Menglöð, from Norse myth, whose name means “jewel-glad.” Her beloved, Svipdag, endured many trials to win her hand in marriage.
Mengloth spake: 'Welcome thou art, for long have I waited; The welcoming kiss shalt thou win! For two who love is the longed-for meeting The greatest gladness of all.'
