The Womb Blessing


Träumerei -Robert Schumann

Jean M. Laffitau:
"You captured the beauty of a female body so perfectly!!
I’ve always said, a woman is the most wonderful sort of music that exist!

I'm busy prepping my solo show "GEMS" on February 8-14, 2010
at the Academy of Lifelong Learning (University of DE) where I teach.
It will be a show with all my little treasures.
That's why I came up with the theme "Gems".

This small collage painting is one of a diptych about "Female Transformation."
I love the warm color of burnt sienna in combination with Crimson Lake.

(Strongly Kandinsky inspired.)


I read somewhere:
"...Words cannot fully convey the power and majesty of such an experience,
but your body will know.
This sacred womb work, gentle, yet life-changing,
is a catalyst for global feminine transformation."
