What kind of a dream is it,’ said Óðinn,
in which just before daybreak,
I thought I cleared Valhǫll,
for coming of slain men?

I waked the Einherjar,
bade valkyries rise up,
to strew the bench,
and scour the beakers,
wine to carry,
as for a king’s coming,
here to me I expect
heroes’ coming from the world,
certain great ones,
so glad is my heart.

I finished off my 2011 creative year in the studio with a special painting, VALHALLA, featuring Las Vegas celebrity Brandy Beavers, created back-to-back as a follow up to Avalon. Valhalla is painted in a beautiful blue-green combination that glistens and changes throughout the day and from different perspectives. Approach her from the right and she is green on a gold background. View her from the left and she turns a darker blue on a silver background.

Model: Brandy Beavers
