The goddess & poet...

 Sketches for the goddess & poet
 ....She is about love & protection
  Love is also a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection; 
and "the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another"
 .....She is about truth
  Codex Alimentarius (Latin for "Book of Food") 
Still a subject of considerable controversy... 
... a proposal that no herb, vitamin or mineral should be sold for preventive or therapeutic reasons, 
and that supplements should be reclassified as drugs. 
The proposal was agreed, but protests halted its implementation.

 ...the yin ... yang
...a belief that there exist two complementary forces in the universe. 
One is Yang which represents everything positive or masculine 
and the other is Yin which is characterized as negative or feminine. 
One is not better than the other. 
Instead they are both necessary and a balance of both is highly desirable.
Yin is soft while Yang is hard. Yin is stillness while Yang is movement. 
The sun is yang while the moon is yin. Female is Yin while Man is Yang. 
Mountain is Yin while the river is Yang. Intuitive is Yin while Logical is Yang. 
Winter is Yin while Summer is Yang.

Tracey-anne, transfer....

Lifebook art update

I am still waiting via snail (royal mail - UK) mail for pens to arrive 
so here are my works in progress pics (WIP's).

This process was great fun, using gel matt medium to transfer
a photocopy image onto watercolour paper.
 Neo watercolour crayons,
Derwent watercolour pencils, & glaze medium to add colour to collage.

I used castles in my hair to represent my interest in folklore
& the ideas that I create usually have some connection with this area.

It would be special to make some of friends and family
- what a great present idea!
