The Multifarious Paths of the Emperor Moth - Original Contemporary Black and White Painting

This Original Painting of an Emperor Moth, created in Black and White, is titled "Multifarious" by Jeanne Fry. With a Contemporary and Modern feel, the painting focuses on the highly detailed Emperor Moth while hints of Abstract movement come from behind. 
By creating the artwork entirely in black, white, and shades of grey, I wanted to highlight the contrast and illusion of Simplicity and Complexity. The abstract flowing design behind the Moth represents various choices offered to the Moth - the Multifarious Paths of her journey.

She later realized that she had put herself through a great deal of unnecessary worrying and stress. After exploring all of the various paths that were open to her, there was no "right or wrong" choice for they all brought her to the same destination - the place that her motivated heart desired. Some of the paths took considerably longer than others. Some of the paths were more difficult that others. And some of the paths tested her, asking her if she was sure about where and what she wanted.. She stayed persistent and strong, referring back to her heart when she doubted. She learned how sometimes we can make the most simple and obvious things in life way more complicated than need be. And, she learned above all, to be grateful for the Journey and grateful for the Multifarious Paths that bring it color.

Warrior Woman, be sure to Tend to your Heart.
Don't build a wall around it,

for your Heart is the motivator for everything you Stand for.

Yes, there are times when your heart will ache
and times when it feels like someone is ripping it from your chest.

But your Heart and your Spirit are more resilient than you know....

and the more you Feel....the more you Love.

Warrior Women - Lift Another Up - Day 12 of Warrior Women Series

"Warrior Women, there are some hard things going on in the World right now. You are needed.
You are needed to bring Healing, for the people, for the animals, and for our Mother Earth. And while yes, each day you can bring Goodness on your own....the World needs all of us right now. 
Sisterhood Warrior Women Original Acrylic Painting Art with a Voice by Jeanne Fry

It is time for us to Rise with one another. We must move past the ways in which society urges us to compete and criticize. We need to look and see clearly "sisters with strengths", and not "strangers with weaknesses". There is so much work to be done that we can not let labels divide us and stand in our way. 

Our steps should be guided by compassion and understanding. As we lift one another up, our loving bond becomes stronger."

Cloud Dancing by the Sky Warrior - Day 11 of the 30 Warrior Women in 30 Days series

I'm a Cloud Dancer
a Wind Walker
a watchful Traveler
I'm a Sky Warrior 

Cloud Dancing by the Sky Warrior Original Watercolor Painting by Jeanne Fry

I'm a powerful sphere of energy
spontaneous and unseen
I whisper prayers and messages
that ride the Winds. 

Can you feel my love
when the breeze wraps around your shoulders?
Can you feel my sadness
when the rain drops fall on your cheek?
Can you feel my encouragement
when I illuminate the darkness with the Stars?
Can you sense that I am always here for you? 
Just look
Up.

I'm a Cloud Dancer
a Wind Walker
a watchful Traveler
I'm a Sky Warrior.

Warrior Woman with No Apologies - Day 10 of Warrior Women Series

"No Apologies will be made when she is speaking her truth, for she will no longer water it down or deliver it in small palatable pieces. Her Truth is not spoken in malice. Her Truth is spoken with strength and with grace. 
No Apologies will be made in honoring her own truth, for she will respect the needs of her own Spirit, just as she respects and listens to the needs of others. 
Warrior Woman with No Apologies Original Watercolor Painting from Warrior Women series

No Apologies will be made when she is drawing her line. Her boundaries are healthy and honor her Soul. 
No Apologies will be made when she is defending her line. Her boundaries are transparent and let you know where she stands. 

No Apologies will be made if it appears that she has changed, and no apologies will be made on how long those changes may have taken. She will celebrate her conscious evolving, always respecting what feels right in her heart. 

No Apologies will be made when she reveals her Authentic Self. She may have been afraid to show herself in the past, or she may have been afraid to defend herself in the past, but she is not afraid Today. 

Today, she lives, loves, and breathes from her deepest sense of Truth, 
and she does so with No Apologies.

Pick and Choose your Battles Warrior - Day Nine of 30 Warrior Women in 30 Days

Pick and choose your battles, Warrior. The world is filled with injustices and situations. Not every battle is for you. Gravitate toward people and places that speak to your heart, and give your focused attention to them with an open and understanding spirit. Lift one another up.  Don't let yourself be distracted by things that don't matter at the end of the day, or by the things that run contrary to your soul. 

Pick and Choose your Battles Warrior Woman Watercolor Painting

Stay strong, Warrior. Stay strong, focused, and filled with love, for you will be able to move mountains. Remember that not everything is black and white, it is up to you to see the shades of grey for that is where your help is needed. 

"Pick and Choose your Battles" is Day Nine in my "30 Warrior Women in 30 Days" series. You can see more of her here in my Etsy

Warrior Woman don't lose Hope - Day Eight of 30 Warrior Women in 30 Days

Dear Warrior Woman, don't lose Hope. Your efforts make a difference. You may not see the progress yet, but know that change is happening and you are still needed. You are meant for this because you have a sincere heart and a beautiful mind. 
Warrior Woman don't lose Hope - Watercolor Painting in 30 Day Series
In those moments when you feel like you can't go any further and you can't give any longer, take some time to be the Butterfly. Go inward, as a cocoon, breathe deeply and think lightly. The difficulties you are having may just be asking that you readjust your actions.
 Infuse your battle plan with a refreshed strength and joyous attitude. Re-emerge like the Butterfly, as she takes flight from the spent cocoon. 

This Watercolor Painting, titled "Wings of the Warrior Woman" is Day Eight of my "30 Warrior Women in 30 Days" series.
