Banshee (bean-sidhe)

Irish lore describes the Banshee as a weeping woman who is a kind of fairy folk. This is not to say that the Banshee is not also a kind of ghost or spirit as these things are all interconnected in Irish lore. Banshees have always been a favorite of mine, I love a keening spirit. The idea is very creepy to me. 

This Banshee was drawn for my Dictionary of Mythological Creature, I hope to have it ready in the next year. 

This Banshee was a digital painting project for a series of illustrations titled Thirteen Ghosts. 

Last but not least is the Banshee I am building for my yard haunt. She is going to be very creepy. I can't wait.
