Love’s a state of mind.”
~Fleetwood Mac’s Rhiannon
Rhiannon is known as a
Welsh Lunar Goddess.
Her name means Divine or Great Queen.
She radiants a luminous light of grace, truth and integrity.
Rhiannon is strongly associated
She rides her magnificent
white horse bringing the energy of
free spirit and balanced power.
Rhiannon is free to ride like the wind
for she transcends the illusion of separateness and limitation.
She illuminates the bridge between the physical seen world
and the unseen spiritual world.
This luminous lovely lady acts like a Muse,
projecting the illuminating energy
of inspiration to
writers, poets, musicians and artists.
Dare to Dream...This is the original painting.
The frame is made of grout and tiles.
”What I Learned"
This was one of the first paintings
that I ever painted which was about 5 years ago.
When I painted the horse
the painting took on mind of its own.
I noticed that a female had appeared on the canvas.
When I started painting her in,
her eyes appeared wild.
I tried to tone them down
but nothing seemed to work.The energy was so intense so I decided to let her be…
the way she wanted to be.
I realized that she reminded me of the song Rhiannon by
Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac.
At the time I did not do any research
on the song.
I never really knew the story
behind the song until recently.
A dear high school friend of mine
was having a birthday andher children asked to purchase
a print of my art.
I immediately thought of Rhiannon
because she loves horses and she
loves Fleetwood Mac.
(Her children took her to see
them recently and I have to admit I was a bit jealous.)
This lead me to sit down to write the story behind the painting.
When I researched the song I found
out that it is about a Welsh Goddess
who is associated with white horses.
She is said to be related to the
Irish Horse Goddess Epona.
(Click here to see my print of Epona.)
Wow…I was so surprised.
I noticed that the painting looked just like the description of Rhiannon.
I got chills to say the least.
I will say that each of my paintings
teach me things about myself or lessons
I need to learn.
They are all like a personal journey with my spirit.
When I painted Rhiannon I was
getting in touch with my
inner feminine power and strength.
Now I am returning much stronger
but still expanding out of my shell...
so that I can share more of myself and my love with the world around me.
I hope you have some great stories
The world loves a good story.
There is so much beauty all around
and wonderful stories waiting to be told.
Love is a state of mind.
(Update…I just posted this last night
and first thing this morning I heard…
this print from my shop…
right after listening to this
youtube song by Pink and John Legend…
