Runes Shalt You Find on Kickstarter!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/samflegal/runes-shalt-you-find

As a reward for “The Illustrated Hávamál,” Kickstarter, a series of high-end Limited Edition silkscreen prints were created for “Odin in a Windy Tree.” The prints turned out amazingly! As a part of the new Kickstarter 100 program and as a follow-up to the Limited Edition “Odin in a Windy Tree” silkscreen prints, I want to make another amazing print featuring “Runes Shalt You Find.”

Freyja's Due

This is the largest oil painting I have ever done. It measures 48" x 29". It was incredibly challenging, but I feel that I have learned so much in its creation. I've wanted to do a Freyja painting for awhile. She is the goddess I get asked the most about.

I didn't want to do the traditional image of Freyja as the beautiful Goddess of love. I wanted to do battle ready badass Freyja riding atop her battle swine, out to collect the dead that are half her's by right. I feel like I accomplished that, I hope you like the painting as much as I liked making it.

Only 25 Limited Edition Prints will be made for "Freyja's Due."

Bragi's Tongue

Sometimes things just click with a painting, and "Bragi's Tongue" was one of those. As I painted it in oil things felt effortless. I seemed to know exactly where to put each color and everything just flowed. I finished this painting in about half the time it usually takes me. Everything just felt right. It was a real joy to work on.

I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Vidar, God of Vengeance

My new painting "Vidar, God of Vengeance" was a complicated painting to finish. As you can see from the initial drawing to the final painting I made a lot of changes. I'm very happy with the results, but this painting reminded me of the importance of getting things right on the front end. Making massive changes in oil paint, is not the easy way to go!

The King's New Crown

My latest painting "The King's New Crown" took a lot of twists and turns. It started as one thing and became something else as I worked on it. It's usually best to follow the trail inspiration leads you down, but it can be a windy path. I'm pleased with how "The King's New Crown" turned out.

All the Gods and Goddesses as LE Prints!

I've been getting questions about why I have certain Limited Edition prints from my Gods and Goddesses series of paintings and not others. The answer is that I've got no good reason. So I took the time over the weekend to make all the paintings available as Limited Edition prints.

If there's a certain piece you've been wanting as a print it's now available.

Thanks to everyone who messaged me and keep pushing and supporting me as I continue to build Fateful Signs.
