My latest Viking Art painting for my Norse Mythology series Fateful Signs, "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.
