Show & Tell: The Divine Feminine

I painted this plate four summers ago while in the midst of my energy work classes. Because I consider myself not very artistic, I am fairly pleased with how it turned out.

My favorite touch is the earth-as-her-belly-button (you may have to click to enlarge).

The Divine Feminine is the energy of love. She is the being rather than the doing. She is the earth mother, the shelter, the abundance, the compassion, the love beyond reason.

By the way, she looks NOTHING like me. Witness the bounteous chestal area. She looks like some of you, I suppose. And like Ethel (my teacher).

Aren’t we all divine?

  8. what a lovely looking plate, I like those reds and purples and while my own chestal area isn’t quite that big, I think that the plate does give the impression of the bounteous nature of the Divine Feminine.
