Description:   
This began as line drawing and I wanted to give myself room for error when I began to paint, so I made copies of this to practice with. The first attempt worked out very well, and I never ended up doing any other versions of this one.

There were some very interesting black and white reproductions of the painting that got made by accident. These are very nice, actually, but the color really adds a lot of power.

This is an image of the Goddess and the God combined into a single entity. She/He wears the crown of antlers that the Lord of the Forest wears, but her/his face is lightly boned and feminine. The fur of the stag is over her/him, but there is a soft fullness to the breast.

I wanted to show how the divine is made up of both male and female energies, and that there is a wildness of animal quality that both the Goddess and the God share. This can combine gracefully into something that goes beyond animal power or sexuality, but still carries some of its elements.
