Aura. Goddess of Autumn Breezes
This was an interesting, if not bewildering, word challenge. Most of my sensations about wind relate to feelings rather that imagery. As I read poetry and a couple folktales in an effort to be inspired to create WIND, I shifted to wanting to create an image and story of my own about.
Autumn is my favorite season wherever on the planet I happen to be.
The center figure here is a linocut created by Australian artist Dijanne Cevaal whom I met years ago when I had returned to visit Geelong, Victoria, Australia during the autumn. Dijanne showed me her linocuts printed on her own hand-dyed cotton and I was smitten.
I purchased several from her and shared them with friends. This one is the last....and something I wanted to remind me of Dijanne, Geelong, autumn....
So here she is
Aura, Goddess of autumn breezes, daughter of Boreas, God of the north wind.
