The other night after receiving permission from the wonderful Flar's Freyja I created my own goddess statue. Well, Goddess, mother, guardian angel type woman anyway, lol.

I was thinking of mayble placing different things in her "hands" and "lap" (there's a small space, can't see it in the pics though) for the different seasons as they come. What do you think?

I like that idea and she has one thing nothing else has....your essence! :)

This is a piece of advise that I am still struggling with. I'm getting better, but there are times when I look at other artist's work, and throw my hands up in the air screaming "why do I bother? I'll never be as good as they are!" And you know, in technique and ability, yes, that may be true. There will always be someone out there who is more talented than I am -- BUT... no one else can put the life and love into my sculptures like I do. My work is uniquely MINE, and I have to remember that my talent deserves as much respect as anyone elses.

Nice sounding words, hard to live up to. Shadowsong - revel in your uniqueness and get out there and CREATE! :woot:

I've added shells, stones, even a book and quill.

And to you and DC, what Shanti says is true. No one else can create your essence.

My goddess for summer. She's holding a prairie comb flower, which grow by the side of our house :) I think she looks quite happy if I do say so myself! :ringaroun
