Hecate Incarnate

Watercolor on 9" x 12" paper. This painting was a birthday present to my best friend (she/her). The color scheme was inspired by her gothic fashion. The moon goddess Hecate is symbolic of her strength. The bats are stand ins for her two children. The cats were inspired by her own rescued cats. 
Hecate is drawn shedding a single tear, the eye itself is concealed. Despite the unspeakable hardships she has endured, she was courageous enough to survive them all. No one in the world has the power to stop this woman-- she is fiercely and undeniably divine.  Art © A. Dante Bravo
