I got a commission from you in 2018 of my little pack then, including my husband at the time. Since then, a LOT has happened and changed…. I would love to have a new image done of my pack, with the goddess Artemis as inspiration. Artemis is the Olympian goddess of the Moon, and chastity. Artemis ruled over the Hunting, the Wild animals and Nature. Much like Athena and Hestia, Artemis preferred to remain a maiden goddess and was sworn never to marry, and was thus one of the three Greek virgin goddesses, over whom the goddess of love and lust, Aphrodite, had no power whatsoever. Much like Khaleesi emerged from the fire with her dragons, I’d like the image to depict myself rising from the ashes. Not that I think I have done so just yet, but this image will remind me of how far I have come and where I am heading every time I look at it. Elements that I would definitely like to have in it if possible: For the goddess Artemis – she is what I try to manifest. Symbols associated with her are the moon, bow and arrow and nature. I think it would be nice to incorporate being in a forest/nature somehow, specifically Amaranth and/or Jasmine flowers if possible. The moon/lunar cycle is important (The Moon is a reminder that no matter what phase I’m in, I’m still whole). Then if possible, having the Sun as a more subtle element, reminding me to “Follow the Sun”. As for the characters in the image – I am attaching a reference of a poster I saw of Khaleesi and 2 of her dragons, perhaps my 2 cats could be depicted in this way, while my 2 dogs flank me like the wolves in Game of Thrones. They are my noble steeds 🙂 I hope this makes sense. I know it’s cheesy. If it is possible to make the title a bit long : “If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’” (This is from the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling).
