There is a place called Glastonbury in South west England a few hours from where I live. It is famous for legends of King Arthur and Merlin. I love going there as I can meet like minded people who are also fascinated with the unseen and of course nature and its magical spirits or guardians.
Anyway, to get back to my painting, I decided to paint a scene showing a Druid woman ( life bringer) standing alone, with her staff showing strength and wisdom. The moon (female energy) is where she draws her power from. There is a weeping Willow tree that in this instance represents sadness. She looks at the world and wonders what the future holds for it. Feelings of sorrow for the present times plague her mind, but she hopes that humanity wakes up and realises that being the guardians of this planet is a huge responsibility and should not be taken lightly.
Here is the painting below and a poem by my son about it. I hope it awakens something inside of you. Please feel free to share your comments.
I am Existence
In youth I blossom with the spring, in night I embrace your every whim.
My gaze is infinite with the sky.
My aura holds more colours than the dusking heavens.
I am a woman, a mother, caretaker of the orchards.
I am existence.
