New Painting – The Cycles of Inanna

The Cycles of Inanna by MVP @ Manifesting Maria

Life is magical in that when we are in the flow, often what we are ready for just appears. I created this blog in order to share my creativity. However, I noticed that I only made 7 posts in 2017 and as I planned for 2018, I committed to being more active in creating and sharing my thoughts, creations and designs.

As I made this commitment, a friend of a friend was hosting a spring art show and was calling for artists. I started sketching out and painting this image which was inspired by a dream that I had years ago and has been waiting patiently to be birthed. Interestingly enough, the theme for the show started out as “Sisters and Allies” and changed to “Gods and Goddesses.” Inanna really was ready to be manifested, huh?

In my dream, the goddess Inanna, hovered in the heavens, her blue skin tattooed and designed with scarification. Behind her superimposed over the galaxies were geometric patterns that represented the multiple and overlapping cycles of time and the ages, reminding me that what once was, always returns.

I’m so happy to be growing, creating and sharing the images that have been burning behind my eyelids for a lifetime.

Enjoy. I hope that you like her.
