----------

Hello,

My name is Sam Flegal

My goal with this Kickstarter is to create a new painting in my Norse Myth series called "The Binding of Loki." In return for your continued support I will be offering prints and originals from my Norse Myth series including a Kickstarter FIRST printing of "The Binding of Loki."

Here are some other examples of my paintings from my Norse Myth series:

My latest painting in the series, "The Binding of Loki" is based on the myth from the Prose Edda about Loki's final capture:

Loki angered the Gods for the last time, was hunted down and eventually captured. Once taken Loki could not escape the might of Thor's great strength. Odin used his magic to turn Loki's son Vali into a wolf, who killed his brother Nari. Loki was taken beneath the earth and placed on 3 stones. Holes were made in the center of each stone, and Odin used Nari's guts, threaded through the center of the stones, to bind Loki.

Skadi, goddess of winter and former lover of Loki, was so angered by his betrayal of the Gods that she placed a venomous snake above Loki's head. The snake dripped its poison into Loki's face causing him to shake the earth in pain. His only solace was his faithful wife Sigyn who collected the poison in a bowl, but it would grow full and need to be emptied, causing Loki to writhe in pain yet again.

UPDATE 2 - Here is my drawing for the piece:

Why Norse Mythology

I've always had a love for Norse Myth since I first read the Prose Edda 15 years ago. As I've continued to research the Norse Myths I marveled to learn that the same Gods were worshiped from the Isles of Britain across Northern Europe all the way to Ancient Russia. If you have any european heritage these are the stories of your ancestors. That only made me love these stories more! I feel that it's important for me to bring these ancient stories to life through my art in hopes that others will fall in love with them too!

Why Kickstarter

By funding this project through Kickstarter I will be able to set aside the proper amount of time in my schedule to make more personal art. You get the benefit of cool artwork from me, and I get the benefit of time to paint what I love! Thank you!

Risks and challenges

It takes me 4-6 weeks to produced a fully detailed quality oil painting. With your continued support I can take the time needed to do this right!

We have successfully funded my painting "Odin's Secrets", as well as 2 other art book campaigns through Kickstarter. Together with my fans I know I will be able to deliver another excellent product.

Thank You!
