Beltane Inspiration

With Beltane fast approaching, I’ve been spending the last few hours preparing my painting in honor of the holiday.

Beltane is a major Wiccan Sabbat and its name means ‘the fires of Bel’, the Celtic sun-god. Beltane marks the return of summer and the sun’s dominance over the earth. It is a time to celebrate the fertility of the earth and the magic bond between man and woman.

In my next painting, I will be looking to incorporate a feeling of sexually charged expectation, the beauty and magic of fire, and the playfulness of youth.  I’ll be working in acrylic on canvas, which I haven’t done for years.

In the meantime, I’ve been practicing my drawing, and working on my writing.

Until next time, peace and blessings on the path towards your most authentic self.

Love and Light,

Raven
