Name Keepsakes: DIANA

My first name keepsake!
So excited!
It was custom ordered by a friend who is giving it as a gift.
The recipient has changed her name to Diana after overcoming a series of life challenges that have strengthened her and led her to identify herself with this being form Roman Mythology.
I have researched the meaning of the name and incorporated images that are connected with the myth.
The drawing is made using archival pens by Micron on acid free Strathmore Bristoll Vellum paper.
Zentangle doodles were added to fill in the spaces between images.

  2. I am still trying to make my reading rounds from this weekend's worth of posts. This is beautiful and what an inspirational story behind the piece. My daughter is very much into Greek/Roman mythology. She would love this. I love how the wing in N creates part of Diana's form.
