I was looking through some ancient art on Pinterest and saw a woman, made of bone with Lapis lazuli eyes from 4000BC Egypt. She looked so familiar to me, like someone I knew, it was hard to believe she was so old. I knew I would be inspired by her and when I started my next drawing, there she was in the center of a tree. These words came to me as I drew: “Welcome to the place where your dreams come to serve your soul”.
That’s Iris with the orange hair. Her hair isn’t always orange, but it’s pretty much the same style. I think she’s going to make it to a potholder, I’m growing fond of her. She showed up in one of my other drawings, and here she is again. Yesterday, as we were driving back from Brattleboro and I was seeing her on a potholder and realized her name was Iris. Here she’s being goddess, lightening, apples, moons and well, I’m not sure how the dog house fits in, but that’s Iris for ya.
“Sugar” was obviously inspired by my trip to NYC. The girl seems to be very much in her life, but on the edge of something, aware or unaware of the vast possibilities, known and unknown before her.
