This painting connects this ‘innate understanding’ we hold within our womb (our gut instinct) to the intelligence of the mind. It is a potent culmination of 2 iconic symbols that have guided my life’s work (consciously and subconsciously). The first is the upward facing triangle which, to me, represents our minds eye. This triangle with the added circle near the upper point is a distillation from my Art By Adelaide logo, which stands as the representative of my visionary art. The second is the downward facing triangle, which has shown up in various healing feminine art pieces including one of my very first oil paintings. Both triangles started as hand mudras incorporated in my dance that over time have been distilled in their design and symbolic significance. The downward triangle with a short line coming up from the lower point represents a yoni (aka vagina or pussy) and has become the logo for my “Womb Wisdom” offerings. As I teach in my movement classes, this piece “connects the spine to the mind.” It unifies our bodily insights with our ability to makes decisions, to create something tangible from what’s felt, to be a visionary.
The center peace of this creation, however, is not the mind or the womb; it’s the heArt! This is where all the semen seeds race. This is the space to reap what has been sewn. A place where fruits of labor blossom and wings spread. THIS was the place I was searching for. This is where I moved towards when I left the city and returned to (my) nature. This is where I found the peace of heart that gives me a loving perspective to calm the mind and trust the senses. The hands on the heart are peace doves, created in the way children use their hands to paint turkeys. My heart giggles with this childish energy and opens a little more to the radiance of its own capacity to LOVE. The throat oozes with an erotic release.
This painting is a bridge! Started in the city and finished in the woods, I can see within her patterns of then and now. There is closure in the visual integration of such potent and defining symbols. And there is an opening in which I match that potency with fertility, the feminine ability to receive deeper and nourish the center of my soul, which in fact is exactly what’s needed for my greater gifts to blossom, and simply unfold.
