Selene by JessiBeans Selene by JessiBeans
Part 2 of 2, this is Selene, named after the greek goddess of the moon, who fell in love with a beautful shepherd, but afraid to watch him age and die, blessed him with eternal sleep to keep him with her always, dreaming of holding the moon in his arms.

I loved that story, though this image doesn't have so much to do with that, this is just my moon fairy. Woo!

Am writing a book about Selene and Endymion and their children. Love that people know who she is. Most people have looked at me blankly when I tell them about this myth
