I Want to Be a Goddess

Check this out.  Found this here.   Once I figure out how to buy one, it’s going up in my office.  I love what it’s supposed to represent.  My hubby said it scared him. There is something interesting about this strong goddess figure bringing that reaction, yes? 😉

Rinda The Scandenavian Goddess

She represents Winter’s struggle to retain control over approaching Spring, just as humans sometime resist positive change because the process is uncomfortable. In folklore, Rinda eventually succumbs to Odin’s (the Chief Nordic God) advances warming and fertilizing her, bringing Spring. She teaches us to accept personal transformations gracefully.

Edit:  I found Lynn Dewart’s personal art site.  Yay!  You can explore her wonderful, creative world here.

About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

    That’s a wonderful piece. You definitely need to have it. If it scares the right people, even better.Carol

  2. That is way cool. I hope you are able to get your paws on one.

    It’ll have to wait. MY laptop died and the first thing on my expensive item list is a new one. 😉

  4. Do you have one of Kim’s burning bunny pins? You could save this photo and have something like that made. Or print and frame the photo for now.

    I still want a Mac, but I can’t afford it.

    I actually contacted the author directly and am mulling over how to get the original for myself. I think she would be the perfect muse for my office.

    Burning bunny pin? I’m off to find that one.

  6. Oh man, you’ve gotta have one of those pins. I love mine. 🙂 (Love the bunny bio on her site even more.)
