I Am Sure You Have Noticed…

that there is no J is for project today.

For the record, J is for Jurate…She who is Goddess of the Sea, Mermaid, Undine…in the original sketch that I did for Her there is a message on the second page of the spread that says, :find your seal skin, sister”…

And it is with Her for the moment that I pause in the coloration of these Goddesses.

Why?

I would love to sit and tell you how I grew tired of using just colored pencil, in a more than slightly darkened room, after hours, with a sleeping, or not quite sleeping toddler…depending on when and if said toddler napped … which we dearly shun the napping of the toddler…well, it would not be too far from the Truth…

But honestly…something else happened…I started to read a book…a book about Aphrodite...(fyi: NOT an affiliate link)…and although the book is about women…the aspects of Aphrodite that have come up in this book in the first few chapters…and the aspects of Aphrodite that came up for me in the first few chapters of this book…have altered the Path that I thought I was taking with these original A to Z Goddess sketches….

The way that Aphrodite…the Golden Goddess…can shift and become The Black Aphrodite, much like the Black Madonna’s of old, much like Kali Ma in Her destructive phase…there is something tilting me in that direction…the direction that I have always traveled is again calling to me, this time offering a new Guide on my Journey…

And what does all mean here?

Not much right now, as this particular exploration is just beginning…although the rest of the colorized Goddesses will have to wait, along with the stack of other sketches waiting to be painted and brought to fruition…there time will come, one and all, in one form or another…

I do have a but here…but if you have been waiting for more of the Riding The Magic Mushroom prompt responses from me…I am back to sketching and am all caught up with the sketches…I have six to paint out (I believe)…

If you follow along on instagram, you will see there are sketches…

I am on a roll now for completing other painting projects and the Mushroom pieces top my list…

Here is a sneak peek at the sketches for the past four weeks:

WIPS. ..I finally caught up w all my Wednesday prompts…now…to paint them all…
