Artist's description:

This painting is part of my Norse Mythology series.

The Valkyries were Odin's battle maidens, who gathered up the heroic dead from the battlefield and took them to Valhalla to await the final battle - Ragnarok. The Valkyries have been a fascinating subject for many painters, and I am no exception. I love the contrast of beauty against the brutality of the battlefield.

This was actually the first piece I painted in the Norse Mythology series. It was quite an experimental process for me; trying a more loose, expressive approach. This painting really paved the way for the rest of the series in terms of tone and mood.
