The Spider Women

Sometimes an image gets stuck in my head, and the only way to get it out is to paint it. Years ago, very sick, I had a fever dream where the spider woman came to stop time. She brought death with her. In this version, I've added some sisters, akin to the Fates--a creator and a web spinner. I'm not sure if they still bring death, or even destruction. After all, spiders keep other poisonous insects in check.
