Journey Begins...again by Dusksong Journey Begins...again by Dusksong
This is the second of a series of six paintings I have not yet finished (a fact which will hopefully change once I find a studio space again).

As I researched different legends and tales from different cultures, I found that almost every culture has the quintessential "Hero's Journey" tucked away in their stories. Of course, the hero may change his clothes, her name, but the pattern is unmistakable.

This painting, then, is the Hero who Travels. It was inspired by a Luristani myth, where sea-horses aren't hippocampuses or the fish, but magical horses who can run as well in the water as they do on land and who speak with the tongues of men. In the story, the boy-hero runs away with such a sea-horse, and the adventure begins.
