Freyja at Midwinter
Watercolor and micron on paper. 8.5" x 11". December 2016.

In the serene darkness of Midwinter, the goddess of magic, love and war takes a break from her endeavors to drowse beside a roaring fire in the secure sanctuary of her hall. Freyja is joined by her two cats, who are happy to have a holiday from pulling her chariot. She reclines against the bulk of her steadfast companion, Hildisvini, the boar itself a traditional symbol of the Solstice celebration. In the soporific glow of the fire Freyja dreams of the events of the coming year. 
Through the windows above the hearth, the first rays of the newborn Sun are seen emerging over the mountains on the horizon, signifying the waxing of the light of day and the imminent return of plant and animal life to the Earth after the cold desolation of Winter.
