Dark/Light by SankofaRida
Dark/Light

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.

BEEN M.I.A...TOO MUCH DRAMA

Fri Feb 20, 2015, 12:13 AM
 



Hey There!!

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.

My emailis klsillustration@gmail.com

STATE YOUR DEVIANTART USERNAME, DESCRIBE YOUR COMMISSION OR ART TRADE AND ATTACH REFERENCE IMAGES!


AGAIN!!! IM TRULY SORRY FOR ALL OF THIS!!

GOD BLESS!
