Robin McKinley's Deerskin has had a lasting effect on me. I keep thinking about it, and having the urge to create art about it. This is a painting inspired by the most beautiful passages in the book, when the Princess Lissar/Deerskin/Moonwoman is described running in the moonlight with her hounds.
Expect more Deerskin art--possibly a Prince Ossin.
SPOILER ALERT: Don't read the following comments if you haven't finished the book.
