Life sucks that in this cyber day and age, I have to post images with dirty great big watermarks all over them to stop cyber theft... That said, it'll still get nicked LOL
The Green Man... What can I say?
I began this painting three months ago and it has, as all my mandalas have, a life of its own. I really only held the brush and the pencil completing this one. A companion piece to the Triple Goddess Mandala, the Green Man brings the balance into my life. The masculine has balanced the feminine. Light balances dark. I sit on the equinox of my life and breathe...
I found the celtic knot centre in Wales. I saw it mirrored in Ireland and Scotland. It really forms the heart of my design - the celtic roots that anchor me. But the colours are Australian - bright and rich, the olive and deep green yellows reflecting the gum trees and the ochres and reds the desert heart of our great Southern land.
As great as it was to visit the places of my ancestors, it was so good to come home.
