Bloddeuwedd

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

There is an old Celtic myth behind this painting, about a young man cursed by his own mother that he may never marry a mortal woman. His uncle out of pity created for him a woman out of meadowsweet, oak and bloom flowers, so that he may marry. 'Bloddeuwedd', meaning 'Face of Flowers', however did not love her husband, and eventually took a lover with whom she plotted to kill her husband. They succeed, but for her 'treachery' she was transformed into an owl, doomed to fly during the night, and cut off from the rest of birdkind. This is one of my new paintings about Celtic women and Goddess', showing Bloddeuwedd in a mass of flowers, wearing an owl mask. This painting won 'Best of Show' at the Conversion XIV Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention!! Prints of this painting are available from the Gift Shop in my personal site!
