Google+ What I Made Today: Mermaid Goddess

Mermaid Goddess

I sat down with the idea to add a pink layer over the pale green of yesterday's mermaid goddess. The voices piped up and anyone who knows me at all, knows that I do what the voices tell me. Creation - of every kind - is a spiritual act, and so I honor the spiritual support that guides me, and I heed their counsel. So out came the art pens ...


I may still add that layer of pink over this. But they tell me to sit with it for the moment. And so I will.

I spun a new spirit cord with one of my impressions of Nature pendants and got it listed You-Know-Where. This one is wild carrot (better known as Queen Anne's Lace) with hemlock on the opposite site.
You can see more of it here.

That's what I made today.

Your mermaid is wonderful, her back looks graceful and strong at the same time.

Ms. Rose,
What do you think of Phenonip? Is it an preservative in products and I was thinking of ordering an herbal face creme that has it as an ingredient. Are you familiar with it?

Thanks,
T

Familiar with it? No. I don't even use citricidal (a processed grapefruit seed extract) anymore.

Yet ... some super-quick research unearths the following little snippets ... you might want to poke around further!

~~~

** The FDA says that“Phenoxyethanol [a chemical component of Phenonip] is a preservative that is primarily used in cosmetics and medications. It also can depress the central nervous system and may cause vomiting and diarrhea”.

Not that I buy on to all that the FDA has to say, but that phrasing gave me pause ... we have enough CNS antagonists in our environment already.

** More enlightening, I read that many European products go out of their way to say that they DON'T CONTAIN IT. Hmmm.

Your call! :)

Ry said...

She is lovely. After a second look I noticed that you have cleverly placed artwork with the appropraite colours at each of her Chakra points...hmmm???

Walk in the Woods said...

Yes Ry ... yes I did! :)
