Spell To Diana by Kennyfiddler Spell To Diana by Kennyfiddler
[I would like to enter this piece into the "Dreams" contest in the All Art Support DA group (egil21.deviantart.com/journal/…) ]

My GF is a librarian who specializes in academic library acquisitions. This means that she buys all of the books for the library at a major university. It's a very cool job: she gets to buy things like medieval manuscripts and rare first editions for her library. I'll mention that she's also Wiccan. So while thumbing through a copy of Aradia: Gospel Of The Witches, a volume of nineteenth century Italian witch lore collected by Charles Godfrey LeLand, she noticed a prayer to the Goddess Diana for finding "some fine and ancient books/And at a moderate price." Imagine her joy.

She asked me if I would do a painting incorporating the text, which she can hang in her office. Here is the result. The dove and the hound are both sacred to Diana, and I used the image of an Italian Greyhound.

Collage, coffee-stained paper and acrylics on canvas, 12x36.
