Last June, I felt called to create a Goddess that represented higher consciousness and more specifically the Pineal Gland. As I began to draw it out and bring this vision to fruition, I didn't feel equipped to execute it in the way I knew it was "supposed" to be. This was just before I attended two workshops that focused on pulling out visions and communicating them through art, as well as approaching painting as a form of prayer. Following these life-changing experiences I returned to the canvas feeling guided through the process. I allowed whatever came to the forefront of my consciousness to find its way into the painting and reveal its meaning to me later on. I put a strong focus on the pine cone in this piece, as it is a sacred symbol and representation of the pineal gland. I projected the golden spiral from the bottom of a pine cone onto the canvas and aligned the nebula with it, infusing intention throughout the composition and thus remaining mindful that the pineal gland is our link to the divine. This theme is repeated throughout the piece, as seen more obviously in the Goddess's crown of pine cones, and then again in the foreground. The three pine cones seated in the grass are a direct reflection of the three pine cones in Goddess Pineah's crown, symbolizing that there is god-essence or spirit even in the most seemingly ordinary aspects of life. She is accompanied by an owl, which have been regarded as bearers of wisdom and keepers of ancient knowledge in multiple traditions and cultures, past and present. The globe in her hand as well as the landscape she has become a part of, is to ensure that she guides us on a higher path, one with respect for the land and it's creatures, as well as all of it's sacred ties.The winged rod of Caduceus was the wand of Greek God Hermes (also known as the messenger of the gods) and features yet another pine cone in her in her opposite hand. The fireflies were an element added to represent the guiding light in our life, showing up in the form of synchronicity, relationships or maybe even a tiny light-up bug ✨ if you've taken the time to read this much I appreciate you caring about my artwork more than you know 🙏 I'd love to hear your experience with the piece or even with your own art-making process. Thanks for the love 💛
