Wonderful Sara, I'm still drawn to the Crone in your series called the Morrigu. Would/Could you offer the reasoning behind how you've conncected her to the Bull ? I'm very curious. lol. Thank you.

Oh that is not a bull, that is a cow. The Morrigan was injured after a fight with Cuchulain in which she was shape shifted into a young cow (heifer). Then later, when she was in a hag form, she tricked Cuchulain into healing her, by milking a cow and offering him milk. For each drink of milk she gave him, he healed of her injuries from the fight.

I guess I didn't think about it consciously, but I doubt the Morrigan would have shape shifted into a cow whose horns had been cut off. Especially since she was shape shifting for a battle.



I can't off the top of my head think of any crones specifically connected to cows, but many goddesses are, like Boann and Hathor.

Thank you for your explaination, as I was a bit confused, yet I liked my enlightenment regarding the confusion. lol, if that makes sense.
I have always been drawn the masculine Bull, in the Bovine World. lol !

I'm still gonna endulge myself with your artwork, with my eye (s) of appreciation, and just see that Bovine with your Crone, as a Bull. lol !

Awesome!

"The people who live in the Ozark country of Missouri and Arkansas were, until very recently, the most deliberately unprogressive people in the United States. Descended from pioneers who came West from the Southern Appalachians at the beginning of the nineteenth century, they made little contact with the outer world for more than a hundred years. They seem like foreigners to the average urban American, but nearly all of them come of British stock, and many families have lived in America since colonial days. Their material heirlooms are few, but like all isolated illiterates they have clung to the old songs and obsolete sayings and outworn customs of their ancestors." Ozark Magic and Folklore

That's brilliant Sara, you're talented--I'm jealous, I can't draw a straight line lol

Ha ha Aurelian, not that its what you really meant, but the only even close to straight lines in my picture are in the R's in my name.

There is a bit of a secret to drawing, most of us use (not all). Having a model or something in front of you to use as a reference (even a photo or magazine picture). For this painting I have these awful plastic gray 12 inch dolls that are poseable . Its not that my drawing was to look just like the model, but it helps get proportions, etc. (http://www.dickblick...tomical-models/)

Although the original vision for this image was when I was crossing the hedge, I still sat down with that model thing to help guide my drawing. There are millions of other tricks, but although my drawing looks nothing like the doll, it does look like a woman, so I call that a success.

I am capable of batik; that's it, do a pattern, fill in the blanks. I've taken the classes, I am hopeless. I can do freehand molecules but that is in no way art.

I've been trying to make corn dollies, even these look like they were woven by a spider on DMT LOL.

New art! I made this crow magic altar kit for my shop. But I thought you all would like to see what I have been up to. I am busy making all sorts of crow themed art!
