Sacred Art Inspired by Eve
Artist Callahan McDonough and I are collaborating to create and curate a collection of 30 unique (and gorgeous) paintings inspired by my writings. Our passion and heart’s desire: to re-imagine, redeem, and reclaim stories of women in Scripture.
Eve was where we had to begin.
Callahan listened to me muse and wonder and exegete Eve’s story. She took notes. She felt deeply. And then she visualized what she heard me say; what she understood as the poignant and powerful themes and elements of Eve’s story – archetype, goddess, and guide. The day she sent me the photograph was not unlike seeing that first ultrasound image of a new baby. And the day she sent me the 18×24 Giclee print, I felt like I was holding that child in my arms (without the labor). Read some of my writing about Eve.
Ronna: I experience profound affirmation from you and your writing. I feel seen and not alone…and this goodness brings me back to myself. There is a line in Adrienne Rich’s poem Transcendental Etude where she says, ” there comes a time when we have to take ourselves more seriously or die.” More seriously as in being fully self expressed in our lives…This is what calls to me in Eve and her Sisters; to sit with her, with you, and to co-create on “holy ground.” ~ Callahan McDonough
Eve was only the beginning…
Next came Extravagant
This is the story of a woman whose actions are told in all four Gospels in the New Testament (this, in and of itself, shocking and nearly unbelievable). She is incredible, strong, and full of desire (much like Eve). Her story is worth knowing. And…her story is also yours. Read more of my writing about this woman.
Now, introducing Elizabeth
The woman to whom Mary turned when pregnant with Jesus. The woman whose own yet-unborn child leaped within her upon seeing Mary. The woman who consoled, supported, and loved Mary. The woman who blessed Mary. The woman who blesses you – even now. Read some of my writing about Elizabeth.
So much more beauty and wisdom is on the way. So many more women to honor, learn from, cherish, and know.
To say that I am excited and deeply humbled by the opportunity to collaborate with Callahan…and of course, to offer these images and words to you would be an understatement.
Callahan and I had the privilege of meeting each other face-to-face ~ a glorious weekend together. And in the midst, we recorded a video in which we talk about our collaboration together. Why it matters. Why the art matters. Why the stories matter. Why our friendship matters. Click below to watch!
These six pieces, part of a much larger collection that is lovingly in-process, are representative of what happens when women support one another and collaborate together. Your purchase supports women, supports the Arts, and expresses your belief in the value of investing, contributing, and furthering the power of women’s stories and women’s commerce.
Serious collectors that I know are focused on the art. They are not looking for a decorative item, or a good investment. There is some aspect of the work itself that has hooked them. ~Eleanor Blair
To own a piece of work done by an Artist / is to possess one of their facets / one of the windows of their life… ~ David Dory
Buy art because you like it and because it moves you, and because it enhances your life. ~ Dan Fear
Each Giclee print, regardless of chosen size, comes on archival paper with a certificate of authenticity. Shipping is done with the utmost of care to assure a safe delivery of this collectible and inspirational art directly to you.
These high-quality prints are recommended as Diptych’s – as a pair; the image complimenting the accompanying “voice,” but they can also be purchased separately.
Measurements are of the outside-edge of the print. Click on any of the images above to be able to see them in larger size.
Bring these women into your home, your life, your heart:
