Say farewell to this lovely lady—she now belongs to a collector in Chicago. But if you’re a fan of Brooks Cashbaugh, we still have a few of his paintings from An America Where This Makes Sense. So get in touch.

Mother of Demons: Caireen, the Dear One by Andrew Constantine. Acrylic on canvas, framed. 18” x 24”. As part of his show Mythos: Gods, Demons, Fantastic Creatures.

From the title card:

Early legends depict her as a champion and defender of youth and a patron of chidren. …Later stories appear to merge her with another god, Morrigan—the crow goddess, associated with war and death on the battlefield. This hybrid deity becomes the mother of phantoms, demons, and shape-shifters, and the patroness of priestesses and witches.

So it’s fitting that, hidden in the hair flaring from the warm and welcoming face, are peering eyes, howling dogs, robed monks, and other creepy specters.

This is the last weekend for Mythos! All work is 20% off until the 30th. If you’re interested, get in touch.

And, as always, the good photos are by John Carleton.

Dark Lady: Aevel, the Lady of Sexuality by Andrew Constantine. Acrylic on canvas, framed. 24” x 20.5”.. As part of his show Mythos: Gods, Demons, Fantastic Creatures.

From the title card:

Referred to as “the Lady of Sexuality”, the character of Aevel was at the heart of a great many erotically-charged sagas. Bards spoke of mythical midnight courts held to determine whether or not husbands were satisfying their wives’ sexual needs. Aevel acted as judge, jury, and executioner, leveling exacting punishments if a lover’s complaints were proven true.

Well how about that to inspire some performance anxiety?

Photos by John Carleton, who’s clearly doing it right.

The Ellen Trechend is Loose: three-headed demon of Samhain by Andrew Constantine. Acrylic on canvas, 30” x 10”. As part of his show Mythos: Gods, Demons, Fantastic Creatures.

From the title card:

Throughout Ireland there are tales of monsters that appear at Samhain which must be killed by a hero. The worst of these was the three-headed Ellen Trechend, that, legend has it, emerged from the cave of Cruachan on Samhain leading a host of creatures intent on wreaking havoc upon the land. The Ellen Trechend terrorized the Irish countryside until the Battle of Mag Mucrima, where the demon was finally killed by the poet-warrior Amergin.

I’m not sure if we should be struck more by the classic terror of a three-headed demon-beast or the hilarity of a “poet-warrior”. Either way, this striking painting is personally one of my favorites from the show. I’m also a fan of the way John Carleton photographed it.
