Painting the Great Mother

Artist Kel Rae on the Spirit of the Great Mother

I paint the Great Mother, known also as the Goddess, who metaphorically represents the mysterious life-providing force within all things and that great source from which we pour forth from. Her soft essence exists within us and around us. Her essence is harmony-bound and it moves us towards inducing harmony.

The essence of this Great Mother guides all things towards a joyous expression of life and harmonious inner peace. It is Her essence that renews nature, pilots individual direction and alleviates death through rebirth.

Early cultures metaphorically recognized their Source as a Great Mother due to its ability to perpetuation existence along with its emotional traits of compassion, beauty, harmony, love, sharing and service which exists, in various ways, within all that is.


I paint this Great Mother heralding Her as the great bringer of peace as she manifests Her harmony through us. I feel my paintings are a meta-language for this gentle essence that moves through all things.
