Not For Sale
After hanging this on the wall at my cafe, a friend asked, “Who is She?” I honestly had no answer for him. She was just there, in my head, and I hadn’t put much thought into the who. Later on, in meditation, I got this:
I am Danu, Mother of the Gods,
I am wild mother Nature,
I am your Creativity and Magic,
I am your Intuition and Wisdom,
I am Water and Wind,
Fertility and Death.
I was here at the beginning and I’ll be here at the end.
Elizabeth Gilbert, in her book “Big Magic”, talks about the possibility of ideas being their own “disembodied, energetic, life form…completely separate from us, but capable of interacting with us.” She believes that the only way they can be “made manifest in the world, is thorough collaboration with a human partner.
When it comes to this particular painting, I believe that must be true, because she was suddenly there, fully painted in my mind, I just had to put her on canvas. I’m finally allowing something fully authentic to come through.
