|HAPPY HALLOWEEN ALL!!|
Linework for Two new Paintings.
Dark or Light. Lilith and Eve. These women were parts of one another. One can't exist without the other because all women posses these traits, from modesty to sexuality and humbleness to pride. Lilith and Eve represents the two halves of a woman's psyche, Her need for freedom makes her a child of Lilith while her desire for acceptance makes her a daughter of Eve.
The legend of Lilith is a dark and grim one, but it gives a glimpse into a long buried strata of the feminine in Jewish legend.
Line work for painting, my image of Lilith, the first woman, before Eve. Stories thru out time have been made to turn her rebellious nature into that of a demonic harlot who murders children. But was God the one who spoke these words or Man, trying to keep females in line. My theory: She was not a demoness nor completely innocent either. She was the other half of female nature, Eve represents compassion, innocence and curiosity. Lilith represents independence, sensuality and courage.
Eve biting the apple was her embracing that half of her nature, which slowly as history as shown us, took hold and is the dominant attitude of many women around the world.
Was it unplanned by God? I seriously doubt it. God tells us that true strength comes from life's experience and thru the survival of the hardest trails. God in a way, was training women to discover their own strength and for men to see and embrace it, thru their mothers, sisters, daughters and wives.
But Lilith also represents this wilder nature when it is not controlled, it can then do more harm then good. Embrace your sensuality but don't use it as a weapon or a means of gaining power, don't let stubbornness narrow your views and do not let your pride prevent you from asking for help or admitting you we're wrong.
As perfect as God made us, we are only a half a true female if we hide half of who we are. Eve and Lilith are two halves of the same coin, one can't survive without the other.
I'm so sorry TO ANYONE who still hadnt received a paid commission or their half of their art trade! I wont even go into the drama thats happened in the past year, but lets point out 3 major ones
1) A Major fire destroyed my home 2 years ago and was a real struggle getting it rebuilt.
2) My original computer was badly damaged and it took me a while to save enough to get a new one, but because of that, most of my work was lost.
3) Many tragedies, lots of work and personal reevaluation...etc.
I'll have to redo all commissions or art trade that were still in progress when this all happened, Please email me with reference pictures needed and a description of your idea and i will get this done. But please remember, if you say nothing, i wont know!!!
BUT NO NOTES, THERE ARE FAR TOO MANY AND IT WILL JUST GET LOST GOING THRU IT ALL.
Between the computer, drama and working freelance i haven't had time for fan-art in a long time. Hopefully this will gradually change.
