Description

Oil on board, 14x18 inches. 2020. Painted for Midnight Garden curated by Beautiful Bizarre Magazine and available from Modern Eden Gallery.

Part of the Mnemosyne Greek Mythology series.

Inspired by the Greek goddess Persephone, and in particular by the Roman poet Claudian's De Raptu Prosperpinae, which beautifully describes Persephone's queendom-to-be, with spirits to attend her, and trees with veins of living ore.

The plants are asphodel, poppies, and (a touch from my own childhood in Canada) ghost pipes. The pair of comets above her crown are the Koronides, nymph daughters of Orion who were transformed into comets by Persephone upon their tragic deaths.
