WIP - Wellspring

Okay, the title is still in the process stage...not sure what the title is going to be for sure yet.

Before we get to the piece first you need to understand who Raven was/is. She is a character of mine who has been with me for many years...since I was gosh...13 or so? Ever since I saw the film "The Crow" I was obsessed with the whole concept and really felt alone in the whole thing. Naturally, I was a teenager.

So I used Raven as a visual means to express what I felt. For a majority of her life she has always been dark, a loner, a witch, the undead, immortal, a killer...but for the good, etc. She has been many things, but in it all she was always one with a void, a hole in her soul...as if it was already gone and taken with nothing in her power to change it.

When I started to get heavy in my pagan beliefs she changed just a bit. She ran to the forests of the world I created at that time, Ikara, and became a goddess of balance and harmony in the wild kingdom of animals. A bit more at peace, yet, still alone, forbidden to have the love she craved, and dark (of course!).

This new piece is her repentance, her rebirth, her release from the slavery that held her so captive and restrained her from becoming who and what she really was..a daughter of God, bride of Christ. She has been freed, filled with the Light of Christ, and truly filled with the love she so craved and could not find. She is no longer the Raven, but the Dove.

This piece is planned to be 11 x 17.

eBay 4/16/07

This week is a bit...off. Least to say. Somehow, after going through the process of listing this item...it didn't list. SOOooo it's starting today. I don't wish to go another week without posting something up.

Mental Note: Auction starts today Monday 4/16/07, and ends on Monday 4/23/07

Now on to the actual listing.
This is Raven. She's a single white female, for obvious reasons, and loves to hang out with two white moon wolves. They're favorite resting place is on a high hill in a dense and dark forest. Their hobbies include hunting, feeding, and well....hum....bringing order to the forest? Interested?

The item up for auction is a small 8.5 x 11 limited edition print (#4/30), but matted in black, equaling the total size of item to be 11 x 14. More info at the auction site.

There will be, however, a small sale going on at DFS that only you and DFS mailing list members know about. If you buy a "Mourning" or "Birth of Twilight" 5 x 7 print you receive the other for free. Meaning if you buy "Mourning" you'll receive "Birth of Twilight" for free. This sale will end Saturday April 17th.
