Lady Katerina waits patiently for her lord to return home from the wars. He has been gone a long time fighting all of the evils in the world. She wonders if he will return or perish to dragons one the land and creatures of the Seas. She knows not what shall become of her if he doesn't make it home. Will she be able to stay in her small cottage or will she be turned out into the evils of the world? Originally done as an illuminated portrait of the recipient of an award in the SCA, Kingdom of Atlantia. I'm considering using the idea as a part of a book I'm planning on writing. The work is based on painted German woodcuts and the 15th Century. Done in gouache, and india ink.
