This collection has been years in the making and after hours of inking, painting, and toil, I have finally completed “The Final Goddess”, the 13th Goddess in the Birthstone Goddesses series!
The turning of the year ends. The cycle begins anew. Her delicate touch brings the frost. Her delicate touch brings the first blooms. Birth, Death, Grief, Healing. Turn, turn, turn.
She is all of these Goddesses and none, the Lady of Eternity, The First and Final Goddess.
I’m so pleased to introduce the calendar! There were many unforseen challenges along the way, from a pandemic to printing woes, but with the help of new technologies in print on demand, I’m able to bring these calendars directly to you all from a printing partner!

“The Final Goddess” Original Painting
Watch a timelapse of this painting’s creation here. That’s 10+ hours of work condensed into 1 minute! I hope to upload a longer narrated version of this painting and the others in the Birthstone Goddesses slowly, but surely, as they take a lot of time to edit and record.
The cover painting was created with india ink pens and watercolor with accents of white gel pen and measures 8×20 inches. The original is available for any interested parties! I’ll be accepting offers from Patrons for a week (till Fri. Nov 10th) before she goes live in my Fine Art shop for the general public.
She can be yours for $2700 unmatted or have me choose a mat, frame, and proper glass for her for $3240, with free shipping within the US and Canada. Patrons will also be eligible to use their 15%-25% discounts on this original as well! The discount is dependent on what tier you’re supporting at.
If interested in adding this painting to your collection, drop me a private message here via Patreon.

This has been quite the journey and I’m still reeling being at this bittersweet end! I’ve prepared a retrospective look at all of the work I’ve created for the Birthstone Goddesses over the years for the next post that will go live next week. It’s been a joy to look back at all my favorites, especially as it’s easy to forget everything I’ve made after this long, ha! It has been a flurry of artistic creation.
Till then, it is time for much-needed rest and celebration!
I hope you all had a lovely Halloween and that this calendar will be a light of beauty and inspiration throughout your 2024.
