Shoshana Gryffyth's Portfolio of Recent Work


2/24/20 - Page created. Please check back in a week for updates.

Court Barony- Laurena

  • Given out on 2/22/20 at the Crown's Bardic Competition: Based on a piece from the The Spinola Book of Hours, produced in Flanders between around 1510 and 1520 by a number of artists of the Ghent-Bruges School.
  • Done in gouache and shell gold with pelican ink on perg.
  • Of note: The illumination really shines due to the ocher paint, which was applied first, then the Shell/Windsor Newton gold mix was then painted on top. This creates a wonderfully smooth look.

Side Panels for Triptych

  • Laurel scroll-triptych completed and presented in court, AS LIV, Queen's and Crown's Bardic.
  • Original side panels conceived by the amazing Paul Butler (Arden of Icomb), words by Katy Ysmay Lynn (Ysmay de Lynn), and the masterpiece of a central portrait by Rick Wolff (Reijnier Verplanck) Side panels painted by Shoshana Gryffyth

Court Barony- Ichi

Absolutely had the honor to paint a Baronial scroll for Ryutsume no Kazoku Ishioka Tora no Botsume (called Ichi). Words and translation by Ryouko'jin of the Iron-skies. Painting based on a piece from the Ming Dynasty. Super fun to do! I absolutely loved this one. Someday I'll learn how to do the calligraphy better, but I was super happy with this.

Words: "Life is waking dreams Sustained by those who believe Hands that Hold us Up Like the dressing of a stage Beauty in kindness The right tools for deeds, always Where there is Tumult His is the breath that brings calm Where there is despair His, the smile to bring comfort When Burned by the Sun He is there to Offer shade Samurai Servant Duties Filled, Honors Given Gentle, Friend, Helper, Baron"
