Without further ado, EDO ♥ MoL!

Oil on illustration board. Framed.
Done for the 3rd annual Month of Love challenge on Monthofloveart.com. The challenge theme was “Forbidden Fruit”.
“Lilith” has always been one my favorite characters from ancient myth. (mainly hebrew, but versions of her seem to stem first from Sumeria)
The story is this: Lilith was created before Eve out of the earth, like Adam, but refused to lay under him and was expelled from Eden. Depending on who you ask, she is either a goddess or mother of demons. Because love has so many dualities, I decided she should be both and neither.

Pasiphae and the Bull
Done for Month of Love’s final theme: Forbidden Fruits. I thought of Greek Mythology immediately. Most of the occasions of bestiality in the myths happen to be Zeus in disguise – but the Cretan bull was no veiled god, there was no grace in store for Pasiphaë, and no hero’s journey for her child, the Minotaur.
Dimensions given reflect framed image.

Long Forgotten Fairytale
The song I chose is “Long Forgotten Fairytale”. The song (my interpretation, at least) is about abusive relationships and the Stockholm syndrome that often manifests in the abused towards their abuser.
That and I just love new wave. Don’t judge me.
