Im inspired by myths, stories, rituals to and art about Goddess archetypes. Through out the world divine feminine energy is embodied in the mythology of sacred women. I find their stories teach me new ways to flex my emotional muscles and help me to better know my path and myself. Part of my spiritual practice involves investigating goddess myths and finding ways to integrate the wisdom they share into my daily activities.
|An abstract goddess I painted in 2006|
Sometime this summer when I was hibernating the idea came to me to use a curvy form with her arms raised and her skirt flaring to the sides. In June I finished the book Goddess Initiation by my wonderfully magical teacher, Francesca de Grandis, and I spent the few days following my initiation ritual painting this goddess image which I call The Regeneratrix.
My plan is to listen to one session every two weeks and do painting and blog post about each one. I'm using raw canvas for these pieces as I like the idea of being able to hang the image like a banner or tapestry. I may even add a hanging bar to the finished product....I have to see how they come out first before I can make that decision.
Watch this blog for posts about this series once or twice a month depending on how much time my painting process takes. For a look into my real-time practice stay connected to my social media and/or join my newsletter for monthly updates on my progress.
