2008. Watercolor. Fairly small (A few inches by several). A bit of a different piece, because I was trying to showcase more of the symbology surrounding the Greek goddess Hecate (or Hekate) & what she's all about, mainly crossroads, choices, the night, magic, the number 3. I painted up the things she is associated with, like the dog is representing her, there's a snake, a key. The "Lampades" are the torch-bearing nymphs behind her, they accompanied her in her goings to and from the underworld. Also on the right is her name in Greek. I enjoyed using actually shiny silvery paint for her outline, also gold for the key. Really makes a painting neat to look at when it's shining.

love the art very lovely, but the symbolism of your description just made me think of boondock saints.
