Continuing with my Greek mythology theme, my latest painting of Artemis:

In Greek mythology, Artemis (the Roman goddess Diana) was the goddess of the hunt, moon, and the natural world. She symbolizes the untamed spirit, unaffected by love, and as an eternal huntress with perfected hunting skills known to take down the most terrifying beasts. Artemis is known as the protector of young children, goddess of childbirth and virginity. She’s the daughter of Zeus and the twin sister of the sun god Apollo. As one of the most widely honored of the Ancient Greek deities, she’s depicted here with her beauty, strength, and grace with her bow and arrows.
