Cowgirl Madonna

Last week while I was doing yoga in my studio I looked down at my leg and saw a green thread and a blue thread on my brown pants.  “Wow”, I  said out loud “great colors.”

So I knew the colors of my next streaming pillow ( I added the pink when I started to run out of blue and what a good thing it turned out to be).   And when I walked into the studio this morning the words ” in the full light of the moon, i saw the shooting star” came to me.  I started with the words and the figure came next.  When I was done with her, I thought “She’s pretty cool”.  It wasn’t until I was half way done that I found myself writing “cowgirl madonna” down her right leg.

When  told Jon the title he asked what it meant.  I said I didn’t know.   And I didn’t, until I read Mary Muncil’s blog this morning.  She wrote about a new way of doing and seeing things.  She quoted Isaiah 43:19 about making a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.  Sounds like something a spiritual cowgirl would take on, to me.

  1. I still find myself in awe when I see a piece of art and I have an overwhelming sense that “I am not alone” someone out there feels or sees things in the same light…Great piece Maria! Thank you so much for sharing your gift.

  2. This is stunning! I love the stars on her feet and hands. It is mystical and spiritual without being creepy. I can’t wait to see your streaming pieces at you show.
