A fine art giclee of my original watercolor. This image has appeared in my calendar under the title Goddess of the Past, Present and Future. The giclee is a fine art print of excellent quality, printed on thick archival paper. It is created professionally by a gallery specializing in giclee, please don't confuse this with less expensive, cheaper images that are run off on home printers or by the dozen at Kinkos! Lovely sharp detail and saturated colors are true to the original watercolor.
I will send along the text of this image, which describes the alchemical symbolism used in creating this painting. Here's an excerpt:

"I am the feminine spirit of the wildwood; past, present, and future. I sprout the fertile acorn, guard the pregnant doe heavy with fawn, and personify life energy emanating from the primordial forest itself. Before me you see the Royal Child, my dancing baby. We represent a visual doorway opening into the circle: embrace the poetry of my closed system in which all is connected, the great web of creation is my being. Nothing is simply a thing; all has life and properties of its own. Beware; don’t make the mistake of assuming this doesn’t exist. Think of the pentagram and its five points: the elements of earth, water, fire, air and the fifth essence, ether (the quint – essence); life quality made by a sentient, universal creative force. Pale and luminous against deep forest shadows, I am light itself, ruling the kingdoms of nature. My heart glows with life, rosy with health. Within the shadows are my creatures, my beloved hares and deer, birds and salamanders, all composed of graceful, vine - like patterns. This represents their wild environment and interconnectedness.

You can understand me on many levels because I represent Queen of Fairy, the feminine energy of the wild and untamed wood. The Lord of the Wildwood, the Stag King is masculine energy perfected and personified, and my consort. I am the goddess in her guise as Earth Mother and protect the feral and freeborn. I am metaphor and allegory for certain truths, yet just as easily convey a personal meaning only you understand”.
