Size: 24x36 inches

Series: The Feminine Almighty

From my Feminine Almighty series, here is She Who Makes Land. I was inspired by the Indigenous peoples of Hawaii, who honor the volcano goddess Pele, and named her She Who Makes the Land. She is still revered today. In my painting her dress is the land erupting as she moves forward carrying a bouquet of flaming roses. In the background are silhouettes of war machines sent to stop her, a statement about the futility of weapons when confronting the power of nature.

She Who Harbors the Sea
She Who Harbors the Sea

Medium: mixed media paints on canvas

Size: 48x60 inches

Sedna is a Native American seal deity from the Northwest Coast. She guards life in the ocean. In Celtic myths she is known as a selkie, In Europe and America, she is known as a mermaid. She was revered and feared and continues to be today. Many lonely seafaring explorers and fishmongers sang songs of her as a temptress who tricked them into believing she was a human who made them fall in love with her. Contemporary songs, stories and movies continue her legacy. She Who Harbors the Sea is my most recent addition to The Feminine Almighty Series.

I began the painting with oil, water and acrylic mediums mixed with pigments and paint that I poured and spread with a brush. I was so surprised by the watery outcome after it dried, that I changed my plans, which is how I discovered Sedna.

The Ancient Greeks named her Artemis, the Romans named her Diana, she was the beautiful virgin huntress and forest guardian. I named her She Germinates Vision. In my painting her arrow holds seeds ready to be propelled forward from her bow as owls observe her from under the full moon. Connected to all life, she is part animal, part plant.

She Sustains Balance

Medium: mixed media paints on canvas

Series: The Feminine Almighty

She Sustains Balance was inspired by the Ancient Egyptian Goddess Hathor. In my painting she holds a scale to weigh the desire for golden eggs against the feather of the sacred ibis. Her dress is woven of the life sustained by The Nile River with a window depicting the depth of life that she carries within her soul. In her right hand she holds an ankh made of a rooted and sprouting branch, the symbol of women as life givers. Incense offerings rise from the bowls that surround her as she stands on hot coals, unfettered. From The Feminine Almighty series.

She Sees What is Becoming was inspired by Skuld, the youngest of the three Norn sisters. More powerful than any god or human, she nurtures the future, even if it means discarding her sisters knowledge of the past and present. The Norns have been revered as seers since ancient times. In fairy tales they were The Three Godmothers, Raphael painted them as the three Graces, and in Shakespeare, The Three Fates. In my painting Skuld foretells the future while she waters the sacred land as ferns unfold their spirals before her. Her head is part of the sky her hair the landscape. Her wings are sprouting life.

This painting hails Demeter, the ancient goddess of seasons who laid lush fruitful land barren when her daughter Persephone went missing. I painted her with a doorway in the center of her body, to which she holds a key on barbed wire, which some see as a rosary at first glance. She is connected to the trees which connect her to Earth. The flowers at the end of her robe were a spur of the moment final decision. This painting brought tears to my eyes when I stepped back and judged its completion. Part of my Feminine Almighty series.
