This version of Medusa as a mythological creature was painted quickly in oils, then the color altered slightly in PhotoShop. Lots more detail could go into this image, but at the moment I am a bit too busy. Will be fun to add to it later.

  1. Medusa looks NICE here! (like someone who might babysit your kids, or your kid herself, or maybe even yourself). Certainly not a face that would turn you to stone. But maybe that’s a myth too–that Medusa was ugly. Maybe she wasn’t, and people only thought so, because folks turned to stone when they looked at her.

    I like this painting. I haven’t done oils for decades.

    • Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. I actually started painting this about a week ago, thinking about a story I am trying to write. Medusa in the story is a bit misunderstood, hence the unusual rendering of her here. I am so glad that you see that! Thank you!
