Color of Woman Journey
140626 unveiling the journey…
On April 1st, 2014 I began
a Color of Woman Journey
with Shiloh Sophia McCloud
and a number of CoW sisters.
a series of inquiries,
a writing journey,
a painting journey,
an inward journey,
an expressive journey.
I am in the process of becoming
an Intentional Creativity Coach
and Color of Woman Teacher.
This is the first time I’ve painted faces.
I only just began to paint last year (2013)
(excepting the very little bit of painting done
when I was much younger).
During that time last year,
I painted for the first time on canvas.
I created 28 paintings, elemental & ‘bug-soup’ kinds of works,
the largest of which is 12×15 but most are 8×10.
Perhaps I’ll share these sometime too.
With C0W I have for the first time worked on BIG canvases
— 30″ x 40″! Ack! (grin)
Elsewhere I am building my portfolio to
trace and reveal the reflections and images
that are in ongoing creation for this journey.
I’ve decided now to capture some of this journey
here on my website
(mostly because I’ve had requests to see).
So now we begin…
Legendary Self 140403-140422
Yes, she turned spectral
and with that came a flood of images
and I reeled.
The next two weeks I spent
creating several more images
to process the bones and blossoms that had emerged.
Finally I was ready to return to her.
My Legendary Self. Her name is Raya.
Here she is ‘complete’:
Comes Forth 140509-10
Shifts & Changes 140511-12++
‘Completes’ — Day 140611 & then deepening to Night 140621 —
She has withheld her name
but has given me her essence and who she be —
Lady, Woman, Warrior, Queen, Wisdom, yes each and all,
She of the Bloods
I reclaim my Fire. (Solstice 2014).
Talisman begins 140614-
The 1st gate 140621
The lost parts, the unavoidable tragedy line, and healing waters
Threading, Reclaiming, and Honoring. I return to the river of light.
And the journey continues… 7 more gates through which to pass…
140706 — She emerges in form
And I wonder what next… (and about those ears -from whom did they come? What do they hear?)
140723 — more presence
140727-0804 – deepening & feathers
She rests a long while and then many calas 141001 (Still in process; calas may not all remain)
Alchemist/Soul Fire begins 140907-0914
140926 and ‘completes’ … Well, maybe. She seems to want white-blue fire extending from right side of body. We’ll see)
