Halloween Fae

It feels like Samhain is already approaching - the veils seem so thin these days.
So it is no wonder that this picture was on my mind. I finished her yesterday:
Now there is still my Maponos painting waiting for me. :)

Currently I am giving Corel painter 12 a try - unfortunately it expires soon.
I'd never prefer drawing with the mouse to my watercolour pencils and paper, but really like it a lot.
The day before yesterday I drew my lovely Amadar, an angel from Machon, the 5th Heaven.
His energy is light blue and he is an angel of love, understanding and healing.
His wings sparkle like snow in the sunlight.♥
One of his symbols is the Fleur de Lis.

Today in history. Again =)

Today in 1307 was probably a lucky day for Piers Gaveston.
Edward I died near the Scottish Border at Burgh by Sands - most likely instructing the earls of Lincoln and Warwick, Aymer de Valence, and Robert Clifford, to look after his son, the future Edward II - whose first deed as a king was to call Piers back from exile. (At least to my biased mind.)

Today in history

Today in 1189, Henry II died at Chinon.
He was King of England, Count of Anjou, Duke of Normandy, Duke of Aquitaine, Duke of Gascony, Count of Nantes and Lord of Ireland - the first Plantagenet to rule England.
Walter Map described him as a man of the people: "He does not take upon himself to think high thoughts, his tongue never swells with elated language; he does not magnify himself as more than man."
As to his apprearance, Peter of Blois tells us:
...the lord king has been red-haired so far, except that the coming of old age and grey hair has altered that colour somewhat. His height is medium, so that neither does he appear great among the small, nor yet does he seem small among the great... curved legs, a horseman's shins, broad chest, and a boxer's arms all announce him as a man strong, agile and bold... he never sits, unless riding a horse or eating... In a single day, if necessary, he can run through four or five day-marches and, thus foiling the plots of his enemies, frequently mocks their plots with surprise sudden arrivals... Always are in his hands bow, sword, spear and arrow, unless he be in council or in books.

Thor - Old Norse Þórr, Old English Þunor and Old High German Donar - the god of thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, destruction, fertility, healing, and the protection of mankind.
Son of Odin and Jord, the earth goddess.

I see him as a very powerful deity, thoughtful, mindful, ironical and even self-mockingly.
His power feels to me like a power of insight and self knowledge. And he is rather challenging.
