Art of the Month: September

Goddess and The Wheel, 2001, acrylic & embroidery on canvas

This is the inaugural edition of Art of the month. I thought it would be fun to share my past art and give myself reasons to keep producing(the motivation is often lacking).
This piece was in my graduation show from University. The image was inspired by the "fertility" Goddess images found all over the world like the Goddess of Willendorf. I found the metal circle and thought it would be fun to make a circular piece. I painted the image of the Goddess and embroidered eight section dividers to represent the wheel of the year. I've hung her in my bathroom and love that I get to look at her every morning. A co-graduate in the show loved this piece so much that she asked for a copy. I found a tiny brass ring and made her a smaller copy. So somewhere out there my friend Christine has her sister.
