New in my Etsy shop:  Postcards, magnets, and prints of "The Seers"!  www.etsy.com/shop/ardenellenni…

Thanks ahead of time for all of the favorites and comments!

They see without seeing, before a wall that is no such thing. Dare you ask what you've come to? They already know your choice.

This is the first painting I've gotten to do for myself since February, as commissions and cons took precedence whenever free time presented itself.  I confess, I'm very pleased with how this turned out, especially as it was something of a stream of consciousness painting.  "The one raven in my photos is blind... that looks cool, let's make them all that way!  Oh, what if their eyes were in the wall, itself... but how would they be supported/kept alive?  What if it isn't really a wall at all..."  You get the idea!

FYI, the bottom of the painting is much richer in person.  The darkest shade of green dried unexpectedly glossy, which makes this one a challenge to scan or photograph.

My thanks to Choas-55 chaosfive-55.deviantart.com/ for introducing me to the below song by Heather Dale and making me brush up on my Celtic mythology for an even better name!

The Morrigan dreams old dreams of flight
The Morrigan sees with another sight
The Morrigan builds with flesh and bone
and The Morrigan fills an empty throne

The Morrigan fills an empty throne
The Morrigan builds with flesh and bone
The Morrigan sees with another sight
and The Morrigan dreams old dreams of flight

The Morrigan knows your time and place
The Morrigan shows your shifting face
The Morrigan stands behind your skill
and The Morrigan sows and reaps at will

The Morrigan sows and reaps at will
The Morrigan stands behind your skill
The Morrigan shows your shifting face
and The Morrigan knows your time and place

The Morrigan chooses when to rise
The Morrigan views without her eyes
The Morrigan sees with another sight
and The Morrigan dreams old dreams of flight

The Morrigan dreams old dreams of flight
The Morrigan sees with another sight
The Morrigan views without her eyes
The Morrigan chooses when to rise
