Since beginning painting again last February, when I took Elisabeth's Muse encounter workshop, I have been painting up a storm!! Fifteen finished, or nearly so!
On Summer Solstice, after finishing the second of my Art of Allowing ladies, Sekhmet, I had a 'council' meeting with 11 of the 12 of paintings I'd done, & my "star lady" wall hanging in the background ...
The smallest paintings were done onmatt board & on a practice canvas. With 'Green Girl' I was experimenting with sea weed for hair ....
|Gabriella, Mary, Daffy-Down-Dilly|
Gabriella - my Muse of Creativity - I've refined her face, & added ribbons to her dress ... her hair has some interference paint 'sparkle'
Mary of Magdalla - painted with inspiration from Shiloh Sophia McCloud
& little Daffy-Down-Dilly (March)
|Dancers, Wind Horse|
"Wind Horse" is a favorite! Began this one in March (the canvas seemed big to me!) during my first 'open studio' day, painting with my friend Elisabeth. It's another I completed during the Art of Allowing course. For the horse's features, I was inspired by my friend in the course Ree Altavilla.
"Presence" was done honoring my Mom (I blogged about her here & here) & there's a little 'blue woman' on card beside her.
|Yarrow Rose, Healer|
(she was in my treatment room during the 'council' meeting)
Several more have 'come through' the creative pathway since this council, I'll tell you more about them later, & about Sekhmet, my fiery Solstice lady!
