Hi there

My name is Emily and this is my dedicated space for documenting my journey with creative living. It is my hope, that I can inspire those of you who visit, read and look through this space to find the curiosity to follow your own inner voice, seek out and do the thing that makes you go “this is what life’s all about.”

Blodeuwedd // The Five of Cups

Blodeuwedd // The Five of Cups

The 5 of Cups (Sorrow - loss of a relationship, emotional hurt, a feeling of worthlessness) depicted as Blodeuwedd, Celtic Earth deity and flower goddess who was created from flowers to wed Llew (son of Araianhod) but caused his death and was transformed into an owl.

I painted this relatively quickly as the background did not take long (lots of wet work with drips and inks). This piece has a very melancholy feel to it, and I was inspired by Goya for the composition.

The reference to the 5 cups is very subtle in this piece – if you look closely (and I may need to touch this up to be clearer) there are 5 cups etched into the tree stump.
