Víðarr, cuts Fenrir's belly open, freeing Odin. I love Odin, he's got one eye, carries a spear, has wolves and ravens at his bidding, and has a great big bushy beard! I painted a portrait of my professor, Dennis Nolan, as Odin back in college. I am Danish, so I have Viking blood in me, or at least I tell myself that every night before I sleep, so I loved doing this piece. I had been a little while since I had done something so big, 18" x 24", which I thought this painting deserved. Hope you all like it!
