Tala

Here's a work in progress of my latest picture Tala. According to Tagalog mythology, the moon goddess hid the stars behind the clouds during the day so they wouldn't be burned. The stars would come out when Tala, the morning and evening star, would say it was safe. Thanks a million to Klarissa Delos Angeles both for the idea and for posing for me! If you have a moment, it's worth checking out some of her awesome art!
