Every time I see one or both of our cats at the window, trembling with excitement and chittering at a bird outside, I get an image of them daydreaming about wearing wings and soaring off into the sky. I haven't yet been able to draw it to my satisfaction.
This comes close....
I photographed the cloud on Thursday as a typical Florida summer storm was building. All the cats here are different shots of Daisy; their wings are taken from the Devi in my studio.
The sun is a little mixed-media piece I did called Sun Goddess: sculpted, painted paper pulp ringed with shed cat fur (I've erased the fabric-covered wood block on which the face is mounted). I created the rays in Paint and smudged the larger forms in Photo Editor.
The temple, which I photographed in Garni, Armenia, had been built in tribute to an actual sun goddess named Mehezh. (My poem The Temple of the Sun-Goddess, Mehezh gives more detail.)
