The Call to Women to Heal - Visionary Art by Jeanne Fry



Women are being called, called to Rise and Step back in, in order to bring Healing to the world. For far too long women have been oppressed and treated “less than”, unequally and unfairly, placed inside a box of restrictions with a “dumbing down” of their capabilities. While the world has been controlled by greed and power, women have been inundated with the distraction that we are weak and broken emotional creatures. We have been filled on a daily basis, being taught that we are not good enough, and that we need to look a certain way in order to be acceptable “prizes”. Along the way many of us have forgotten who we are as strong empowered beings capable of creating life and healing our surroundings. 


Our world is going through a period of intense vulnerability. Since the crumbling of the economy a few years ago, that shook people to their very core, humanity has been operating in fear mode. With the loss of money, homes and jobs, people have been living with a lessened sense of security. It is as if we are in a state of grieving, consciously and unconsciously. This has heightened the “dog eat dog” mentality. Coupled with the even larger division of societal classes, the world is rampant with anger and sadness. We are forgetting how to talk to one another, how to have compassion for one another, and the value of human connectedness. 

At the same time our Mother Earth is grieving, while we ravage her resources and force her to try and adapt. Those of us that are empathic can almost feel her sobs, and hope that there are enough of us that hold her in a high enough regard to help her heal. We have to strive to treat her better than we are treating one another, if we care about our children’s potential lives.
Women are being called to step in and bring Healing and Awareness- to remind people of the things that are truly supposed to matter at the end of the day - to help heal our fellow brothers and sisters, and to bring back a balance in humanity. We have been being tested, and sometimes harshly, in order to force us to see what is happening. Having to live it provides us with answers, if we are listening.
I painted “She Heals” as a reminder of what was, what is, and what could be.




“She Heals” is an original painting done in an art nouveau style, on an 11 inch x 14 inch canvas. Using acrylics, the colors chosen were meant to bring a warm and healing feel. It has a balance of earthy yet feminine qualities, bringing together beige, terracotta, and forest green, accents with shades of purple, mauve, blues, and turquoise. The Goddess, Gaia, stands in the middle of the Circle of Life, resembling a mandala. She holds in her palm a lotus flower of healing. Blooming flowers and vibrant vines surround her, amidst the serene mountain backdrop.
The painting is signed on the front, signed and titled on the back, and sealed with a satin finish to protect and enhance the painting. The sides of the canvas were painted to give it a clean contemporary appeal.  Gallery wire is installed on the back for ease is wall hanging.
