Fantasy art is comething completely new for me, but I thought I'd give it a go. I only have this single painting for the time being but it's an interesting genre and one to which I may return.

Goddess Freyja Overlooking the Fólkvangr

Goddess FryjaGoddess Fryja

In Norse mythology, Fólkvangr (Old Norse "field of the host" or "people-field" or "army-field") is a meadow or field ruled over by the goddess Freyja where half of those that die in combat go upon death, while the other half go to the god Odin in Valhalla. Fólkvangr is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. According to the Prose Edda, within Fólkvangr is Freyja's hall Sessrúmnir. Scholarly theories have been proposed about the implications of the location.
