Ground Me Goddess…

Sometimes you just need something or someone to ground you. Sometimes life just kinda sucks…and you need to be pulled back to earth before you head explodes and your soul floats away. That was my yesterday. I called upon a couple of wonderful ladies to help me…one of which is depicted in the card below.

Ahhh…the Earth Goddess. So grounding. So comforting. So warm. What thoughts and feelings does she evoke for you? Right now I want nothing more than to sit quietly in a forest. That’s all. Just me, a forest, and sitting.

This image of the Earth Goddess is of course from Smeared Ink. I colored her with my watercolor markers. I left her “skin” linear and textured because I wanted it to be bark-like. The color in this pic is a bit wonky, but I wanted you to see it because it really shows the Glimmer Mist (Lily Pad) and the pretty sheen on the leaves in the corner.

Isn’t she pretty? I wanted to thanks all of the ladies that were there for me yesterday. I don’t know how many will be reading this (I know at least 1 will!)…but I am so grateful. Thank you for being there for me. Today would be much harder if it wasn’t for you.

Thanks to YOU for stopping by! Have an inspiring day!
