She is Hekate

I was checking out gods and mythology on Wikipedia (which all falls under the broad parameters of ‘research’) when i came across a goddess and I just knew I had to do a picture of her. She is ‘Hekate’ and is associated with crossroads, entrance ways, fire, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs & poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. Apparently she has rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour , Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul. Now in my book that’s all pretty impressive CV and you also can’t take away the fact that she has three heads. Which is surely more useful than just the standard one…

Once upon a time we had a table with a glass top. After one party too many that was a jumble of shards. So we replaced the glass with an appropriately sized piece of MDF to serve as the new tabletop. This was painted up with a jaunty design but over the last couple of years has become smeared and stained with a wide range of substances. So it was time to give it a little facelift…

Cue the white masonry paint and a bit of waiting for it to dry (whilst amusing myself with Lizard Lick Towing on TV) before I grabbed a couple of cans of inspiration/beer from the fridge and set to work. For some reason I settled on some kind of triple deity. But the deity doesn’t look very happy. I can’t wait for the weather to improve then hopefully I’ll motivated to do something a little cheerier…
