Progress is being made

So, a few things. Mostly, things are going okay. I think the shrines have settled down into a configuration I’m happy to work with for the time being, so I’ll get on to the State of the Shrines post this week, just so that’s one less thing I need to worry about.

I’ve been posting my #domagick stuff over at the grimoire, in case anyone wants to read about my daily experiments with fire magic and self-transformation. Also decluttering. It seems to be going well so far. I’ve got about a month left or so until I’m done. It’s the only place I’m doing daily blogging right now, so feel free to head over and see what I’m doing.

I’m still working on the Shedety daybook, though I have now made a book for it, so all I need now is the calendar. I’ve started on the list of Wesir and Aset-Renenutet festivals, and once they’re done, I’ll begin combining them all, and putting the final calendar together. Then it’ll be revisions, and formatting, and once it’s all done, writing it all into my book. I’ll show it off once it’s done.

Finally, the Covenant of Hekate are running another creative project for the next month or two over on FB, and this project is to create art, to draw Hekate as you see Her. I am sorely tempted to attempt to draw, at last, the Isis-Hekate(-Mary) statue I have had stuck in my head for the past four months or so, since I have no other ideas. And it would at least stop nagging at me, so. That’s one other thing that may turn up here, or at the grimoire idk. But we’ll see. I might end up drawing something else entirely.

Art (draft): Isis Smiting Her Enemies

Isis smiting art draft

This is based on the dream I wrote about previously. I felt an urge to begin drawing Her this afternoon, and this is what I’ve got so far. The perspective’s a bit … off, in terms of what was meant to be in what hand, but I was more concerned about the pose and how the snake, and the crook and flail, were positioned.

I did trace the basic forms and then embellished them to fitt, but I wanted them to look right, not try to draw them freehand, which would have looked awful. I am not a great artist. But I do my best. I still have the background/setting to do, as well as the inking and colouring, but it’s not a bad result to start with, and you’ve probably got a better idea of what I was talking about in my dream in terms of what I saw. Even if the hands are the wrong way around. Just pretend you’re looking at Her back.
