Wise Woman 1

For some years I seem to have been creating pictures in various media of older women – the Crones in my psyche I suppose.   This is one such, painted with acrylics on hessian,  that I don’t think I have shared before – she hangs on my small landing beneath a window where she greets me each time I climb or descend the stairs.


I am extraordinarily fond of her.


About Jill

https://landofdreaming.wordpress.com An artist inspired by nature in all her glorious guises and the ‘inner’ worlds I have inhabited in the past, present and future; also those of other wanderers I meet along the way.

    Oh, she’s wonderful! The experience and wisdom she wears on her face is ethereal. It’s a face that I would like to greet me daily! I like the medium, with the earth and native colors. It’s indigenous by ingenius!

    Jill sweetie,

    Her smile is like a hug and kiss from your favourite Grandma. She is absolutely lovely. I love her already, and I haven’t gotten close to her yet.

    Oh she’s such a beautiful crone! Very ‘knowing’ with a touch of playfulness and caring, too. No wonder you love her. You’re so talented, Jill, that is an extremely good painting, wonderful.

    Ditto what they said – what a friendly presence – probably reminds you to be kinder to yourself, as you huff & puff up & down the stairs – St. Francis used to call the body “Brother Ass” – I am sure this crone would have a fitting title for us older gals, like “Sister Ox”…
