Art Spotlight: "Shakti: Water Spirit"

Full color digital print
A serene Water spirit. She represents the element of Water - quenching, cleansing, essential to Life.  Water's power is pure, fluid, flexible, soothing and deep.  It is symbolizes the subconscious, intuition and adaptability.

"Water, thou hast no taste, no color, no odor; canst not be defined, art relished while ever mysterious.
Not necessary to life, but rather life itself,
thou fillest us with a gratification that exceeds the delight of the senses."
—Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Wind, Sand and Stars, 1939

"Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield.
As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.
This is another paradox: what is soft is strong."
—Lao Tzu

This is the third piece in a series I'm working on called "Shakti", which features iconic goddess figures.
