Medusa’s baby Picture

I cannot help the way my mind works

Medusa has historically been seen as the archetype of the nasty mother, so of course I have to try and see her as a baby.

One of the Gorgons, and the only one who was mortal. Her gaze could turn whoever she looked upon to stone. There is a particular myth in which Medusa was originally a beautiful maiden. She desecrated Athena's temple by lying there with Poseidon. Outraged, Athena turned Medusa's hair into living snakes.

Obviously I ignore this and just make her “snakey” from the beginning. Snow Blythe, a portrait of the Blythe doll.

The beauty of Blythe is she is so weirdly creepy cool!

Inspired by the Blythe dolls of the late 70’s this is a mini painting.

A perfect way to have original art in a small space! Each painting has a layer of artist’s gesso is applied, allowed to dry then sanded again. The piece has 3 layers of gesso hand sanded between each application. When the painting is completed it is them finished with 3 coats of sealer to protect it from environmental damage.
