44 Days of Witchery, Day 32: A pagan/witchy artwork.

One of my favourite artists, Autumn Skye Morrison, who also happens to be a friend of mine, does a lot of pagan-y artwork. I own one of her paintings, “Grounded”, which is a dual canvas piece with ravens flying in the top canvas, and one standing with the image of a woman sitting overlaid in the bottom canvas. I also own a print of one of her works, the name of which I can’t recall, that reminds me of the Feri Peacock God.

Anyway, the one I’m going to share with you today is called “Queen Bee” (click on the image to go to its page on Skye’s site). Bees I feel are a quintessentially witchy animal, mainly because of their very large presence in Starhawk’s The Fifth Sacred Thing. I’ve been interested in bee magic for a while, and recently have had some UPG that they’re a Brighid animal (and I seem to recall reading somewhere that bees were kept by St. Brighid’s nuns, so that could be supported by fact).

You should definitely take a look at some of her other works on her site. (Unfortunately the two I own are not up there.)
