Medusa's Tale Coloured

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

The inspiration for this drawing came from a one-act play I helped to stage manage and ran lights for called, 'Medusa's Tale.' In the play we get Medusa's side of the story. Basically Medusa was on a pilgrimage to all of Athena's temples and had taken a vow of chastity. Well, Posideon saw Medusa and fell in love with her, but when Medusa wouldn't have him he raped her in the sanctuary of Athena's temple. Athena refuses to help Medusa and calls on Zeus to punish the profaning of her temple, and since Athena is Zeus' favorite, he punishes Medusa with her snakey hair. It is an excellent play by a woman named Carol Lashoff. You should check it out.  A lot of this was experimentation with brushes and stuff.  I may redo it one day, but we'll see.
