Pretend you're a goddess. ~cecilia maria

The new painting...it's coming along.
24" x 36"
oils
'If summer was a goddess'
sorry for the not so good picture, I took it in the studio with a flash...because it's still dark-thirty here. Click to enlarge.
***
O Goddess Earth, O all-enduring wide expanses! Salutation to thee. Now I am going to begin cultivation. Be pleased, O virtuous One.


~Ancient Sanskrit Prayer
***
Which is the woman, which the child? The joyous laugh that opens doors, steals sugared moments from the shelf? Or the dreamer mixing metaphors with tears to make a book of self To read aloud in winter's rooms When summer's sounds have ceased to bloom?
***
Ok, Ok... so I've started painting again. Woot!
Having a broken foot is good for making art I find. I got so bored that I was able to shuck the blahs that have hounded me all summer long and started painting again. Thank the Goddess!
I've got a busy day today with coaching clients and I want to get the rest of this painting blocked in so I can start working the details.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday,
Heather

Oh, Heather, so sorry to hear that your foot is broken! I think the universe might be trying to tell you to slow down and take care of yourself.

I like how your painting is coming along too!
