Gaia - Number 2 in Series of 30 Goddesses in 30 Days

In the wee hours of the morning, while the Moon still reigned the sky, I began on my second Goddess painting for my self challenge. No matter how I try to change my schedule around for creating, I still find myself more inspired at night and so I follow my intuition. (You can read more about this self challenge I am partaking here http://jeannefryart.blogspot.com/2015/01/30-goddesses-in-30-days-artistic.html   )
While my fur babies lay sleeping nearby I spread out my Peerless Transparent Watercolors and began. I knew immediately that Gaia was going to come to the surface this evening. This Greek Goddess, sometimes referred to as the Great Mother, is the Divine that sees over the Earth and its life force. 

Her concept came quickly, leading me to give her a skin tone that resembled an earthy landscape and lips like the sea. A small sparrow sits on her shoulder, in reverence of her spirit.
I used colors that represented the Earth and the Sea, giving her a warm and loving essence.


The painting of the Goddesses has lit a fire in my belly, and I can't wait to see who will show up on my paper tomorrow.


Gaia has been SOLD
You can order Prints of her, as well as tote bags and more in my Society6 shop here
