The Wild Hunt




New Painting - The Wild Hunt...


The Wild Hunt is a spectre which rides across the sky every Samhain (Halloween). It's a night of wild abandon and freedom, where the world of the living meets the otherworld of the fae and the ancestors...

This is a painting I did after a Shamanic Journey where I saw, and was part of the Wild Hunt... I tried to recapture the feeling as well as I could with this painting. When I was working on this more and more animals wanted to join in - so it became quite a party!

For anyone interested there are prints available on Etsy...http://www.etsy.com/listing/85813785/the-wild-hunt

Gorgeous work! I love the sense of movement and intense colour pallet in this piece.
