A Maenad is a creature from ancient Greek Mythology.
From Wiki; “In Greek mythology, maenads (Ancient Greek: μαινάδες, mainádes) were the female followers of Dionysus, the most significant members of the Thiasus, the retinue of Dionysus. Their name literally translates as “raving ones”. Often the maenads were portrayed as inspired by him into a state of ecstatic frenzy, through a combination of dancing and drunken intoxication. In this state, they would lose all self-control, begin shouting excitedly, engage in uncontrolled sexual behavior, and ritualistically hunt down and tear animals (and sometimes men and children) to pieces, devouring the raw flesh.”
After rewatching True Blood season 2, and seeing how crazy Maryanne is in the show (the phycotic Maenad). I decided to paint my version of a Maenad.
Acrylic on CANVAS
Painting I just finished!
Ive been watching alot of True Blood these days and im really getting into it, season 2 is MMM’azing! For all you True Blood fans you know for a fact that when vampires cry they cry blood, so today I thought it would be cool to paint a vampire chick crying right after she’d been transformed.
(the shoe was done separate, it was for an art project I did last year)
