To Find You


by Scott Lockhart

I kept asking you
the same question
but your answer was
vacant, empty,
there was nothing real about it.
I remembered who you were,
the flowers in your hair,
your eyes were soft and kind.
I just wanted to find you.
To hear your sweet voice.
To see that crooked smile.
I just wanted your love
to flow again,
to tumble over me,
to cascade down the mountain
like the little stream
we’d sit by
those many years ago.

Buckskin

by Brooke Medicine Eagle

This piece is made of deer buckskin my partner and I hand-tanned and smoked to make a soft and easy-to-work ‘fabric’. It will be fully completed when I wet and twist all the fringes to give it a more old-time feel (this was done originally to let the water drip off the fringes and dry better). The shoulders were joined with

The Aztec Goddess of Flowers, Erotic Love and The Underworld

by Katlyn Breene

Commonly depicted as wearing a blue tunic woven with flowers, a garland of green feathers, as well as red and yellow flowers, golden earplugs and pendants. Flowers emerge from her mouth symbolizing eloquence. A red serpent signifying unbridled passion emerges from her vagina. Beneath her ocelot throne are marigolds and a skull symbolic of the underworld. Marigolds are still offered to her today and to the dead whom she protects on Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead.

Sekhmet

Poem by Bhen Rudha

Be still in the dark and listen.
For in the night you’ll find mystery and secrets and breath that barely leaves the lips.
There is wisdom there.

So sing gently into the silent night, Lion Mother,
And drip honeyed dreams into the hearts of Your children.

Be still in the dark and see.
For the shadows have mingled into pools of bitter memory and the sweet slide of skin against skin.
There is healing there.

So walk softly through the silvered night, Lion Daughter,
And let Your steps become the heartbeat of the earth.

Be still in the dark and touch.
For the dark can guide, as surely as the day, with a gentler hand, a lighter touch, a softer lesson.
There is peace there.

So journey through the tides of darkest night, Lion Teacher,

Cosmic Star Goddess

by Shawna Stewart

Not only are we in the Universe, the Universe is in us. I don’t know of any deeper spiritual feeling than what that brings upon me. — Neil deGrasse Tyson

This powerful energy painting was created with the intent of remembering our divine connection to that which is so much greater than we have been acting. Be the star goddess you were meant to be, in each loving, kindness inspired act that you do, each day, each now. Be DIVINE!

Self Portrait as Lilith

by K Lenore Siner

Sometimes painting is excruciatingly intimate. Through the process of creating I am often forced to engage with aspects of myself that I would rather look away from. More than that, the final product is at times something that feels so personally connected that sharing it publicly can feel like I am sharing some of the most fragile or unbearable parts of myself with anyone who has eyes.

My last painting “Self Portrait as Lilith” is an acute example of this. Here I am, naked, bony, wild, legs spread. It feels horrific and shameful on some levels. What is my aim in painting something like this? Why not paint her with someone else’s face and do away with the personal connection?

Ready

by Susan Korsnick

Acrylic on canvas . 18″ x 18″

Ready represents that moment in our lives when we know that the growing pains we feel mean change is on the horizon. We may not know what is coming, but we know that we are about to enter a new phase of life. Ready is more than a painting…it’s a prayer. It’s what I offer up to the Divine when I’ve done everything in my power to prepare and now, here I am, vulnerable yet strong, ready to take that next step. Each chapter in our lives requires a rebirth of sorts; that’s why the woman in the painting is in a womb with her hands in prayer. Being ready means being ready to surrender.

Nakai

by Douglas Walker

Grandmother Nakai Breen was a Cherokee medicine woman in southwest Texas. She was known throughout the world for her compassion, her dedication to serving others and her powerful healing capabilities. She was fully connected to multidimensional reality. She was able to call eagles from the sky. She testified on behalf of the Texas Kickapoo before both the Senate and Congress in 1983. Her testimony led to the passage of H.R. 4496, the bill which led to the Texas Kickapoo’s right to land, medical and other citizen rights under our U.S. Constitution. To date, she is the only Native American woman who has ever served in this role. I believe she was one of the “Keepers of the Planet” and a whole lot more.

Weimar

by Savannah Schroll Guz

The Weimar period in Germany, although politically and economically tumultuous, had a liberating impact on German women, who enjoyed the vote during this period and were freed from the restrictive corset by “Reformkleidung.” At the time, Marlene Dietrich and her androgynous wardrobe and persona became the symbol of the changing role and appearance of women in German society.
