A little painting to celebrate the world not ending. Oil on canvas-textured paper, 11.5x15.5 inches (29x39cm). Did not intend any specific narrative, although had the Lady of the Lake motif at the back of my mind, also the fact that swords were deposited as votive offerings in lakes and rivers well into medieval times. (Also the Rhinemaidens, who appear in Rackham's illustrations, although atmosphere wise I was hoping more to evoke the likes of Waterhouse and Draper).
