Swept Away by Brigid’s Creative Fire

Brigid 1

About 10 days ago, I woke up in the middle of night thinking “I have to paint a portrait of Brigid, where she is offering us her sacred fire.” I got up and made some thumbnail sketches, then fell back asleep.  In the morning I recognized it as a calling.

I feel a little bit like I’ve been whisked away by the faeries the last few days . . . caught up in a creative vortex, creating this image of Brigid. Experiencing “flow,” where hours slip away like minutes . . .

I’ve been sharing glimpses of my process all week on Instagram and Facebook. It’s lovely to get such enthusiastic feedback!

I’ll be back at the drawing board later today. All that’s left to do is her hands and face . . . Blessed be.

  1. Dearest mermaid sister, your Brigid is gorgeous. There is such strength and wisdom in her face. … and she brought back memories of your Bride tale too.

    1. Dear Cate, I had forgotten all about that tale I wrote so many years ago. I should dig it up again. Thank you.

  2. Brigid to me is one of those Goddesses that I aspire to be like. She is the waters of the healing well, and the fire of inspiration and fire of the forge. That synergy of opposites within the self is a very powerful idea for me.

    I can’t wait to see her finished! 🙂

  3. This morning the sun rose in Aquarius 11, whose Sabian symbol is, “A man tête-a-tête with his inspiration.” I opened my email to find your message about Her. xxoo
