Love ; the Lady Cloud Walker

ImageShown above , ” The Lady Cloud Walker ; Love , ” is the first new completed  work from my series ,  ”Goddesses and Angels ” photographed in June at Vytacil Artists Residency where a month was spent immersed in Art and Nature . This is one of the recent works created from the time spent there . The model is Tendai Gumbo , a Zimbabwian artist .

We created this shot using natural clays and elements for  the body adornment .I used symbols connected with her family , and others that just came to my fingers as  held the brush . A green clay mixture was applied by brush to her face and body . Designs came to me as her energy flowed out in our creative interplay . She posed beautifully , as if entering a sacred spirit place after I had made her crown and dressed her . We wove flowers into sculpture and headdress and crown with roses into her plaited hair . Suddenly , Tendai had a crown of roses , and she radiated Love , shining with their radiant brightness , and shining out her own . She  entered into a forest later , where we completed our shoot surrounded by ancient grey oak trees , and she danced there , watched by the trees and the deer hidden in the green forest This is the piece created from that morning for my series , Goddesses and Angels .”
