Art Journal – Pisces Ingress

“If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The image above shows a goddess figure, seated on a lion. Her meditation is serene within the swirling blues and purples of the dream sea. A dusty purple flower blooms to her left, and a fish rises from the deeps to leap in the waves.

Materials: Printed rice paper, tissue paper, acrylic paint, acrylic gel medium – gloss, soft.

A mixed media piece I just finished today in my art journal, honoring the movement of the sun into the tropical sign of Pisces. Pisces is mutable, watery, and traditionally ruled by the planet Jupiter. Modern rulership has been attributed to the planet Neptune.

Under the snows, the earth slumbers and dreams of the greening to come.
