A Rock Offering to Ganesha
Orange Elephant God,
Help me lay the foundation.
Obstacles be gone.
This beautiful little statue of the Hindu God, Lord Ganesha: the lord of beginnings and wisdom, sits on the windowsill at Elizabeth’s lake house. One evening, we were rock wrapping by the windows as the rain poured down outside. This rock with its orange wax linen thread and the tiny orange bead felt like it belonged in front of Ganesha. I left it there, on its bed of eucalyptus dyed silk.
Ganesha is thought to be the remover of obstacles. Perhaps my simple offering of orange, rock and love is the reason that my creative path seems to have opened up so wide right now ?
I don’t know for sure but I will take that gift very willingly !
Yesterday morning, I set up a spray play time outside on the back deck.
Stencils, spray inks, papers of many different kinds,
and a clothesline to hang the results.
An hour and a half passed so quickly
left me with another cool stash of papers to play with in my collages.
The walnut spray ink was the earthy darkness that I was most pleased with.
I have ordered my bees wax and found an electric skillet at the Goodwill store
but until my order arrives,
good old gel medium will work to adhere my goodies.
This 6X6'” canvas piece includes a color copy of the green angel that originated in my journal a year ago.
New larger wings and a glorious earthy background
using bits of my recently sprayed papers
this new angel creation that I am loving a lot !
So much so that the palette inspired three little rock wrappings to go with it.
I am thinking of listing them all together as a package deal in the Etsy shop
so that someone else can enjoy them up close too.
May the obstacles in your path today be few
and easy to circumvent, Beautiful Ones !
Happy Friday !
