The project I am most excited to be starting is called “Goddess Meditations” which is a series of iconic goddess shapes which celebrate the female body as divine. I chose this project because after 6.5 years of making “skeletons with hearts” and I need a break from thinking mostly in red, black and white. I find the Goddess’s energy to be super fun and right now I just want to fill her with color.
In the summer of 2015 I finished working through the book “Goddess Initiation” by my witchcraft teacher, Francesca de Grandis (@outlawbunny), and I painted this to commemorate my moment of self-initiation into a new layer of spiritual service.
I called her “Regereratrix”.
And so I decided to commit to manifesting this “Goddess Meditation” series. It’s a perfect project right now for me to to play with color and find new harmonies of beauty. Ive been developing a bunch of color palettes to play with within her form and a stack of “Women Spirituality” books from when I was in grad school that I’ve been meaning to read for years.
My commitment is to make 100 paintings in this body of work. Some will be larger acrylic paintings and some will be smaller mixes of watercolor, gouache, ink, and acrylic paints.
