Miniature Traveling Shrines for Focused Intentions

I create my Art much like I live my life. I believe in Symbolism. Everything holds a meaning and has a symbolic purpose in our life. I honor nature and her diversity. I honor the animals and the lessons they teach. And I honor each thing that I bring into my home, for each has a purpose dear to my heart.
This week I worked on some miniature shrines, or traveling shrines, since they are so easy and portable to take wherever you want them. Each are a piece of mixed media altered art that began from an altoid tin. Hours were spent on their intentions, their color schemes, and their embellishments making sure that each step of the process was purposeful and precise.

When working with this grouping of shrines, I knew right away what each creation would be. I was creating one for The Love and Happiness of the Dragonfly, one for Reflection, one for Prosperity and Abundance, one for Bear Totem Medicine, and one honoring the perseverance and passion of Frida Kahlo.
Usually when I create a shrine I do so in a larger format and out of wooden boxes, but I do love the versatility of this small size.

Stone Crow Shape Shifter

The woman had been feeling empty for years, alone and lost. Each year she had lost more and more little pieces of herself , in relationship and circumstance. After time her face had appeared to look as if it were made of stone, revealing a cold emptiness...until she found a crow mask while out walking.

 Once she put on the mask, she was filled with emotion again. She found her voice and felt a completeness in her being. She was able to create within her life again, manifesting her desires and reclaiming all those lost pieces of herself.
Now she is a part of the Crow Clan. She communicates and journeys with them.She has  found her new home.

Remembering Who You Are Goddess Divine Feminine Folk Art

I think that in every woman's life, (or at least every woman that I know), there comes a point when you begin to feel fragmented. Those feelings and questions to our inner self come up, asking "Where did I go?" "Has anyone seen those little pieces of me?" 
Along the way, we often lose pieces of ourselves...some we gave up thinking we were doing so for the better good...some just got lost here and there. Life changes and relationships, give and take, and compromises can all lead to dropping these little pieces of ourselves until soon we begin to feel empty and may not even recognize who we are. When we reach this point, we often start taking inventory of our life and set out on a journey of self discovery and self recovery. 
This time of life is what inspired my most recent painting, "Remembering Who You Are".
"Remembering Who You Are" a spiritual art painting by Jeanne Fry
"Remember Who You Are" is a contemporary folk art painting, full of spiritual symbolism, by Jeanne Fry. The painting is inspired by the Divine Feminine and the Goddesses that existed in another time. It is a reminder to those who are on their spiritual journey to reclaim those pieces of themselves that they have lost or forgotten along the complete their portrait of "oneness" within. It is a call to honor our complex spirit, the light and the dark, the happy and the sad, and bring forth our authenticity of self.

This painting is dedicated to all of my goddess sisters, in gratefulness for how we support one another.

"Remember Who You Are" original folk art painting has been sold.

Nubian Goat Totem Symbolism

The Nubian Goat is rich in symbolism.Goats were one one of the earliest domesticated animals because of their many attributes, sought for their milk, meat, and hide.Their milk has a higher butterfat content and is generally easily digested by humans. Their hides are used for leathers in crafting everything from rugs to clothing to bags.
They represent abundance and fertility to us, a continual sustenance to satisfy our needs.
Goat and Sunflower, a contemporary folk art painting by Jeanne Fry
Goats are strong and easily adapt to varying terrain. They are excellent climbers and carry a surety in their step. Before goats were bred and domesticated, they tended to live in mountainous regions. They can adapt to their surroundings and do so with a careful and thoughtful step, showing us that when life gives us challenges to proceed with an awareness and courage.
Their climbing ability to the tops of the geographical peaks was representative of being able to see the "big picture" and attaining a stronger connection to that which is larger than us.One could say that the goat is symbolic of balance and perspective.

Thank you for visiting my blog. You are welcome to explore my other blog posts here, many which focus on animal totem symbolism.
