“Without reference to texts or traditions
We drink the life water together.”
-Rumi – Chinese and Greek Art 2202OC
This is part of a new series of Sacred Earth Feminine paintings, richly textured and deeply evocative of the Neolithic era which also inspire the work. First, when I create these works, I feel that my hand is touching the hands of an artist and the woman whose portrait was created 10,000 years ago, originally in clay. Finally, I feel a circle of humanity is complete, and I am blessedly a part of it.

Therefore, I invite you to come into her space and hear what is said from this time and place to yours now. This painting, as well as “The Light that’s Blazing Inside” (below) are on display at the Littleton United Methodist Church Arts Festival April 23-24, 2022.
The body itself is a screen
To shield and partially reveal
The light that’s blazing
Inside your presence
