Sacred Fire by goldenwolf
She dances for the good of her tribe, around and around the sacred fire, enticing the spirit within to come forth. If she succeeds in wooing the spirit with her dance all of her tribe will be blessed with health and prosperity for many seasons. If she fails, the fire will consume her whole. But she is confident in her dancing, transfixed upon the fire, calling it forth with her movements. She will not fail, for her heart is made of fire as well.
Second in the "Sacred Elements" series I am doing on commission for a wonderful couple. I really love how this came out, even though I struggled with it for almost two years XP This painting fought me every step of the way but I won! XD *falls over*
This is the same tribe of wolf people as the wolf in "Sacred Waters", and "Sacred Winds" and "Sacred Earth" will be likewise. I may end up doing something with this tribe, I am not sure yet. We will see!
