Halloween - Jealous Circe
After reading and being totally captivated by Circe by Madeline Miller I felt instantly drawn to the painting by John William Waterhouse called Circe Invidiosa, painted in 1892 this painting hangs in the Art Gallery of South Australia. I have seen photos and reproductions of this painting so many times and had to create a brooch version of it.
Hand assembled layered acrylic, painted on the etched areas with extra resin added to emphasise Circe's poison, with a brooch finding on rear
