The Dragon-Calling, Hern & Deer-Goddess (3 art works)

`The Calling’ was initially done as a painting/crayon work on A4 paper. But few years later, I took a photo of it, and whilst keeping the dragon intact and enhancing it, I added photos of April, backgrounds (countryside from Cornwall, cliffs from Hastings) by building up layers (infact the original photo of the `girl’ is a nude one, and the cloths were built up using other photos of fabric!!)

The Hern graphics (left)  is quite old.. almost 6 years, and was initially created for the ritual group `Hern’s Tribe’ (something I started).  You can see how the original photo of me (beardless, short cropped hair) was digitally pained and enhanced. The interlaced background of Trees came from a photo of trees i had taken in Wimbledon!   Few years ago,the same art was used in A Pagan Federation magazine `Pagan Dawn’.

The eco-art `Deer Goddess’ (right) is one that  my partner April and I created in Richmond park some 3-4 years ago, using twigs and pieces we found nearby. Once finished, we did some meditative work with the creation, and left it for the natural elements (and real Deers) to scatter it again.  We can just imagine if a passer-by had seen it (it wa slightly hidden) and got a surprise!
