Just a finished pic of the portrait I did for Ian Ward! It's on its way to England now!

"Companions of Woden"
Portrait of Ian Ward
Oil on canvas, 2012

The norse God Woden was credited with special magical powers as a magician or sorcerer, ruling by his magic and taking an interest not only in this world but also in the next. In spite of his interest in battles, Woden did not fight in them but intervened magically making use of his herfjoturr, or army-fetter, a paralyzing panic.
Woden had two ravens that sat on his shoulders: Hugin ("thought") and Munin ("memory"). They symbolize the principle of creation and could fly through all reaches of the universe.
