Iris by redheaded-step-child Iris by redheaded-step-child
The fleet-footed, bright Goddess of the Rainbow, Iris acted as a divine messenger of the Gods and served Hera, Queen of Olympus, in particular. She could often be seen carrying messages between heaven and earth, her glorious cloak of many colors trailing always behind her.

This painting was made using the amazing stock of , and the model, Jen, is unchanged in appearance, as a bit of a portrait. I thought the Goddess of the Rainbow would be a fitting tribute to Lisa and Jen, whose modeling and photography are such an amazing resource and inspiration! :hug:

Her rainbow cloak is absolutely amazing and I love how there are creases in it to make it look realistic! I also love how you added the winged sandals and the caduceus like Hermes has, it shows them that they have almost the same representation although hermes is the messenger of gods to gods and iris is from gods to mortals or those on earth. Beautiful work!
