Here She comes again...

Hello-o-o from the studio-o-o!  Just in case you didn't get enough of my Goddess from Willowing's class back from the first of this year, here she is again.  She's finally finished!  Hooray the Goddess is done!  She just keeps coming back around like that mouldy fruitcake from Xmas - ha!

It is true that my life really wasn't my own for most of this year and many of my projects still remain undone.  So, I am glad to have finally finished one of the big ones!!!

 Goddess Now...


Goddess before...

I thoroughly enjoyed working on her again after all this time.  I think I will be revisiting my Mermaid painting as well but not for a while - I need to create anew!

I must admit to being very tired and overwhelmed so my muse is but a whisper.  Alas, a whisper is better than total silence so I will go with that!

My magic chair has been a hostess to my idea journal as of late and I've been coming up with a lot of fun ideas - we'll see if I can actually get some of them off the ground as I work on recuperating.

Thanks for sticking with me my friends!!!  Your comments make me feel like I'm not so alone with my heavy heart and it's lovely to know you are all still creating and sharing of yourselves - I am trying too!  Please forgive me for not answering all your comments - I'm still catching up and will be around more soon.

Music in the studio this week: DVD's    The Band Perry
                                                       Taylor Swift - Fearless
                                                       Taylor Swift - Speak Now

So, keep your fingernails dirty with bright colors under them and I will too!

Forever in art,

Jessi

Aw, Sweet Jessi....you are definately not alone! Your magic chair seems like the perfect place to dream away....and I think dreaming is one of the best ways to rejuvenate and renew...

Take your time..in art and in life...we'll be here!
Of course, I do love seeing your work...so I'm selfish in saying that I hope you do get those ideas off the ground :D

Much love,
Cam

Hi Jess, I totally remember this Goddess. Loving the details you added. I have always been quite jealous of your magic chair. LOL Keep sitting on that chair so I can see more of your beautiful work. hehe

hugs,
Maggie

Your goddess is beautiful! The new one is glowing!

Your goddess is so much more vivid in the after picture. I always feel better when I get a project completed, and I hope that you do too. I hope that your art continues to bring you healing.

She is very beautiful and has a very peaceful feel to her. Goddess of Peace perhaps? I love all of your art. You truly have a gift of sharing beauty with the world. I would love to share your art on my blog series, if you're interested you can let me know.
I hope you are well and healing through your art. Peace and blessings to you!

A whispering muse...I like that. Sometimes we need to be quiet and listen, yes? I'm in love with your goddess painting, Jess. She's beautiful. Lots of energy in that painting. Consider yourself hugged!

Hi Jess! The Goddess turned out BEAUTIFUL! My muse completely left town for 4.5 months this past year so I can totally relate.
I just read about the passing of your father. I'm so sorry for your loss :( Hugs, Darla

Ooooh, I LOVE HER!!! I really see the differences between the before and after - and I LOVED her before! Beautiful metallic paints (and you got them to show up in the picture!) and gorgeous details! Glad you're back in the magic chair and I hope that you are considering Life Book next year? I would love to play with you there too, xoxoxo
