Snakes have symbolized many things throughout history across various mythologies and legends. 

In Sir Thomas Malory’s ‘Le Morte D’Arthur’ snakes were depicted as omens of King Arthurs’ death.  

Merlin had made the dire prediction that Arthur would die at the hands of his son Mordred.  Days later Arthur and Mordred’s armies were massed on the Salisbury Plain readying for battle.
The night before the battle, Arthur dreamed that he is tied to a wheel that plunges into black water full of serpents and horrible beasts. 
Shaken by this vision, Arthur offered Mordred a truce, to which he reluctantly agreed.  
Both armies swore that they would bear no arms during the treaty signing ceremony.
The waiting armies were tense, and it was then that a snake made an appearance amongst Mordred’s ranks causing a soldier to draw his sword to kill the snake. This simple action was misunderstood by Arthur’s men to be a breaking of the no-arms oath, which caused both sides to immediately engage each other in battle.

The conflict ended with Arthur killing his son, but not before Mordred had time to plunge his own sword into Arthur’s head - a mortal wound for the king.

It’s taken me two days to redo the facial features because I wasn’t happy. 
Still not happy to be honest, but I should be satisfied soon….
Fingers crossed x
Otherwise all else is coming along well.

Feeling a need to be away from my laptop for a change (AFK) but also needing to take care of some long overdue admin. 

Here’s a handwritten list (albeit a messy one) of some popular Instagram artist shoutout #tags. 

They’re a great source for getting noticed on IG, as well as a great way to find awesome new and inspiring artists :)

More layers down & starting to look at filling out some details.  Lots, lots more to go yet - not even close to being done.

Here’s a detail shot of last nights painting progress.  Technique wise, I salted my black wash which is why it has that lovely textured look to it. And for the yellow bit, I washed the yellow base colour and then used masking fluid for my very first time - ever. I admit it, I was a little nervous.  No disasters so far :)

Huge thanks and love to all of the awesome people who’ve been buying my ‘Brain has the Tardis’ tee at Redbubble. It makes me smile each and every time I see that it’s been sold, because I’m just so chuffed to see that there’s so many other people in the world who not only love Doctor Who, but also love Brain and his quirky sidekick Pinky Narf!http://bit.ly/POltLE

I shared this work a few days ago now, but I wanted to take a moment to explain who this is and what her tattoos mean…. for those of you who might be interested.

This work “Moirai” – is my representation of the Fate Lakhesis.In Greek Mythology, the Moirai were the three Goddesses of fate, and daughters of Zeus and Themis.
The first of the Moirai was “Klotho”, known as the Spinner. She spinned the thread of life, so essentially was the Goddess of birth. 
The Goddess in this image is “Lakhesis”. Her name means “apportioner of lots”, and it was she who measured the thread of life.
The final of the Moirai was “Atropos”, and it was she who cut the thread of life – the Goddess who brought death to us at it’s apportioned time.
As far as symbolism goes, I’ve given Lakhesis a number of tattoos (because I have a HUGE love of tattoos)
1) She bears a depiction of her Father on her right arm – Zeus, the king of the Gods. Since he’s the God of all the Gods I think he warranted a feature on his daughters arm.
2) On her left shoulder you’ll notice some bees. The ancient Greeks believed Bees to be envoys of the soul, and for this reason they’re a favourite addition to many of my works. I’m even planning on adding them to my own personal tattoo collection.
3) On her legs Lakhesis carries the markings of her sisters – the spindle representing Klotho the Spinner , and the Olive branch – symbolizing death – representing Atropos.
