Don't Give Up Pandora

Is it just me or is this time of year slightly depressing?  To combat the general malaise... ahem (big words for big feelings) I paint, and I paint strong women plus I meditate and call upon Her. I participated in a Spiral Dance led by Starhawk for Winter Solstice last Saturday in LA after attending the Renegade Craft Fair; what a dichotomy!  Perhaps I'm being harsh but the fair felt like Gen Y's in corporate art mode (beautiful and all, but very very digital and the art all looked the same) and then in the Reclaiming Tradition the Solstice event was of course pagan and kinda like attending church for smart hippies; lots of dancing, calling in of the elements and drumming by folks with very interesting names.  I prefer the latter; dancing freely is fun! Plus Starhawk with her permaculture activist background orates spectacularly; all of us were mesmerized as we swayed in tune with her words and her drum. Pandora watercolor by artist Kathy Crabbe

Today's painting is yet another Goddess-ey being who i named Pandora after listening to Tori Amos' song Pandora's Aquarium. Tori is a Goddess, so if you haven't listened to her She rocks magically, big time.

About the Creative Soul Guides ~ Art to Awaken Your Creative Soul

Creative Soul Guides help us enter into other realms; realms where inspiration, quirkiness, love, and being different are okay.

Kathy Crabbe painted the Creative Soul Guides with her non-dominant left hand. This awakened Kathy's intuition and she started giving Creative Soul Readings using a deck of 88 cards.

Coming soon! Soul Essence Portraits - a Creative Soul Reading combined with a painting of your soul's essence.
