Witches Dance

With a nod to Hallowe’en, this is an image adapted from a painting called ‘Nymphs Dancing to Pan’s Flute’ by Joseph Tomanek. I am always a little disturbed by the bad reputation witches get and wanted to show them more as free, nature-loving spirits than any kind of malevolent group. The only witches I’ve ever met and spoken to, were one Winter Solstice at Stonehenge when we were standing next to a group of ladies wearing purple and sky-blue robes, welcoming the sunrise like the rest of us. At one point, a little girl came up to one of the ladies and asked, “Mummy, what kind of witch are we?” The lady replied, “We’re traditional Pagan witches darling,” and watched happily as the little girl ran off to play with her friends.
