Sunday Art

First, I want to thank Violette for awarding me the Rockin' Girl Blogger!! I am so excited to receive this award and to have Violette award it is big for me. Meeting her changed my life in a very positive way. Perhaps one day, I will have the words to express my gratitude and explain the change she made.

I was inspired by Inspire Me Thursday to do this Goddess painting.

Inanna is quoted, saying "I went there of my own free will. I went there in my finest gown, with my rarest jewels, with my Queen of Heaven crown. In the Underworld, at each of the Seven Gates, I was stripped seven times of all I thought I was. Till I stood bare in who I really am."

Whew. A blessing or a curse? I guess it depends, huh?

The other pic is a picture frame I am painting.

I was really stuck today. I desperately wanted to create something but was quite uninspired. Thank Goodness for Inspire Me Thursday and for all the people (like Cheryl Finley) who inspired me to check it out.

I am still living in bliss, in case anyone was wondering. :>)

Have a great week everyone.

Lisa....the goddess painting and the words are poignant. We are covered in many layers....taking them all away to find the essence of who we are....I think it's a blessing.

What a fantastic comment by Gemma, couldn't have agreed more!

Stripping ourselves bare to find the real person is something powerful and beautiful and sometimes quite difficult. This painting and the quote is a perfect example of doing just that. I love it!

I am struck by this frame. The colors speak to me, and your unique painting of it. Seeing it inspires me and I hear from within that "we can choose to paint the frame in which we view our life, and we can "reframe" our view whenever we need to." Wow! I needed to be reminded of that! Thank you for inspring that wisdom to bubble-up in me; and thank you for sharing your creativity!

And, that was sweet of you to mention me re: Inspire Me Thursday. I too love it and the wonderful kindred spirits that have come into my life as well.

Godspeed my sister...

P.S. I'm happy that you're still in bliss : )!!
