The Power of Wilderness Unleashed

This is a tribute to wilderness areas around the world, but more specifically The Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante which the US president is trying to attack on behalf of mining interests.

This tribute is not just to the two wilderness areas but to all those who are standing up to and fighting this desecration of sacred land.

 

Dances with Tree Elders

I created this with Toolwiz and a photo from Pixabay.  It reminds me of the Six of Trees in the Tarot deck, The Shining Tribe, by Rachel Pollack. The trees are very lively and happy, with the meaning: “Confidence, optimism, inspiring others, walking lightly over serious matters.”

 

Nature Magick

I’ve been taking part in the Art Every Day November challenge run by Leah Piken Kolidas, and this is my final image.

I revisited a photo I took of a nature park when I used to live in Bowraville, on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, Australia. The park was established by an Aboriginal Elder and it was quite other-worldly when you walked into it from the road. All the traffic faded away, there were no sounds, and you could feel the nature spirits around you. It was incredibly peaceful and I wanted to try and capture the other-worldly feel of it. A really magickal place!

Tree Elders Dreaming

 I created this with Toolwiz and a Pixabay image. I dithered for ages with the images created in a Toolwiz overlay as the other images were much clearer and brighter. But I decided in the end that I liked the more blurred image here because it made me think of trees dreaming into the universe and invoking galactic healing for Planet Earth.

Memories

I returned to this collage today to brighten it up as it was looking a bit faded. I created it before we left Australia in 2012 to move to North Cyprus. I had a lot of cards I’d kept from people I loved – friends and family – so decided to cut out images (rather than take every card, there were lots!) and created this collage as a tribute to my memories of loved ones in my life. The two decorations at top left and right were created by our granddaughters for our wedding cake when we got married in the UK in 2004 just before returning to Australia. I added silver, pink and purple glitter as well as rose/gold paint.
