Sacred Art: Green Tara and The Morrighan

Yet another installment in my “Goddess” series of paintings, using watercolours on cheap canvas.

The first painting draws upon Hindu lore, and depicts the Green Tara, along with her mantra in Sanskrit at the top (Om tare tuttare ture soha);

This one one I actually did specifically as a present for my sister, though keeping it to myself was awfully tempting. It’s a very “pretty” version of the Irish war Goddess The Morrighan, and the skulls are painted silver;

And here’s a bonus “symbolism painting” I did (it’s rather basic), depicting the ‘sunset’ of Christianity and the ‘sunrise’ of Earth-based worship;

Sacred Art; The Goddess/Heroine Scathach

Another watercolour pencil, Sharpie and pen illustration on canvas, of my other patron Goddess, Scathach.

I’ve also started working on my own set of divination/oracle cards. The deck is based on the theme of “Daily NeoPagan Practice” and has 44 cards in it. I’ve included a preview of the first 10 cards, in the initial inking stage;

Stay tuned for more artsy stuff – I’ve also finished the initial inking of my Book of Shadows, and have a bit more colouring to do before completion. I’m thinking about photographing the entire thing and uploading it here as a .zip folder – any thoughts?

Sacred Art; The Goddess Brighid

Lately I’ve been branching out, art-wise, and experimenting with different media. I’m particularly taken with permanent texta and watercolour pencils on canvas. I’ve done a couple of different pieces, including a ‘devotional’ piece to one of my two patron Goddesses; Brighid.

From left to right, Brighid in her triple aspects as; the Healer, the Flame of Inspiration, and the Smith/Fferyllt. There are gold metallic details, too, but they don’t show up very well in the photo.
