So I want to paint a devotional triptych to Loki and Sygin because I love painting. Problem is I am not a very good painter. How do I know if it's good enough for them? How do I know if I'm doing enough of an effort? Sorry if this sounds weird, my "godphone" has terrible reception most of the days.
There are two opposing schools of thought here. Some people believe the gods only want and deserve the very best. Others believe that it’s the thought that counts, and every effort is appreciated regardless of the quality of the results. As with all matters related to incorporeal beings whose existence can’t be empirically proven, there’s no way of truly knowing for sure one way or the other.
Personally, because Loki is such a parental figure in the lore, with a bunch of kids of his own and a pattern of helping others, I’m inclined to believe that he’s capable of appreciating any and all art made for him and proudly displaying it on his metaphorical fridge. But if you’re not convinced, there’s always divination.
If you do go ahead with the project and are comfortable posting the results online, be sure to send us a link. Best of luck!
