“The Winter Solstice or Yule It begins on “Mother Night” and ends twelve days later, on “Yule Night”, hence the “Twelve Days of Christmas” tradition.
Yule is a time of the Goddess of the Cold Darkness and the birth of the Divine Child, the reborn Sun God. It is a time of renewal and rebirth during Winter, and the turning of the Earth force tides.The Winter Solstice had been associated with the birth of a “Divine King” long before the rise of Christianity. Yule is about renewal, re-birth, returning hope and life.”- Ravenhawks Magazine
In a world of fear and constantly being someone else, it is a blessing to be me, a witchy cat.🎃 Happy 👻 Halloween- The Witchy Cat
One of my Favorite Paintings I have done to date. Presenting “The Lady in Red” Yes she is Love. She is passion, understanding, strength, knowledge, will, sensual, a warrior, a beautiful companion, friend, a mother and a leader of her own creations. She is the soul within us. Getting ready to be fully manifested to owning, accepting who she is, taking charge to serve the greater good of humanity and the balance as she walks the path of her truth. Wherever she goes there’s beauty and creation, freedom and joy, wonder and magic, stability and abundance. I bow to her presence and style. She becomes who she is. She is not a dream. She is Real. She is the light, The Divine Soul- The Lady in Red ❤️

Every art has a story. No matter what form of art it is. It is a story of imagination. And here’s mine. Art was my to go escape from reality as a kid and then it became my passion, my career. But now there is no need to escape anymore because my imagination is my reality. I loved just to sit and paint all day long. Sometimes for hours and hours where I would not get up from my chair. It gave me peace, brought me a to world of belonging. Where I could be me and just paint away. Every painting, still life, textile, design I created has a personality, a character an imagination. No matter if I was just painting a flower, stem, Apple. They all had their own story to share. Preparation of my art materials excites me and is very important to me. My space where I would sit and do art, my wooden palette, my colors, brushes, water, a rag, tissue, the style and texture of my medium I am painting on. Everything even till today is very detailed and thoughtful. This preparation is my temple, my sacred place where no one could go but me. It was for me. Always there for me. Whenever I wanted I could go and be me. Be me with my paints and brushes and ready to play. Once I am prepared I sit and listen to my imagination, the story it wants to share about that thing or the person I am painting for. The mixing of colors, the depth of layers, the details, highlights, shadows, composition. It makes my paintings come alive. My art gives me purpose to live, hope, strength, put words when I didn’t have. It shared my happiness and tears. Yes. Art is just not a piece that we hang on the wall or any design on any medium. To me its a sacred friend, a place, a world only for you. That piece of art, design knows you and only you. It will always lift you up no matter where you are in life. And this is what I love when I create art or any design. And these are the stories I will be sharing. Hope you enjoy as much as I have enjoyed making them. They all speak to an individual I did paintings for and what my imagination told me about them. It was very inspiring for me to paint their imagination.
