Odin's Secrets is the first painting in a series I plan to do on the Norse Gods and Goddesses. It depicts Odin in his guise as Grimnir, the hooded one, wandering a wintery Mid-Guard in search of his secret knowledge. Odin's two ravens Huginn (thought) and Muninn (Memory), fly across Middle-Earth each day gathering up all the happenings of the world to report to the All-Father. In addition to his ravens, Odin can commune with the dead. One of his most potent artifacts is the preserved head of Mimir, the dead god of knowledge and wisdom. Mimir's head whispers secrets that only the High One gets to know.

For this project I want to try my hand at offering high quality limited edition prints. This is not something I've done before, so I wanted to ask the support of Kickstarter fans to help me enter this next stage of my art. I appreciate your help!

Two rewards deserve special note: At the $279 amount you will get this original preliminary sketch:
