This took me too long. I have been meaning to do a Lilith forever. The thoughts behind this one are the fears that we women often have of our own power. You can read more about that at my blog if you would like.

Tammy Mae Moon is tired of writing about herself in third person. I like to paint. I like to paint women and birds and snakes, and a few other things.

    Incredible !!! The power of being a woman is a scary place to go sometimes. What an excellent portrayal. She is so full of emotion, love her bejewelled darkness- Well worth waiting for Tammy xxx

  • Thankyou so much Anita. Lilith is such a strong energy to work with. I think I have been going through all kinds of journeys through my psyche with her :0), glad you like her!

    She is AMAZING Tammy. Hands down my new favourite of yours. Gorgeous portrayal of strength & beauty.
    There’s certainly still a sense of fear present… You can see behind her eyes she’s ‘thinking’ about her power, rather than staring it down or acting. The gaze of to the left… Almost reflective… perhaps momentarily taking her away from the power she now holds, but once was less sure or aware of.

    How we define women’s power, or who we see as ‘powerful women’ is fascinating. Of course, many parts of that are individual perspective; but what western culture in particular, teaches to be a woman’s ‘power’, is interesting at it’s best, and frightening at it’s worst.

  • Oh, that is very true. Pretty much be powerful like a man or being way too sexy are our only two options for power in Western culture, or at least in the mass mind’s view. I wanted to portray our fear of our own personal true power that only each of us really know. I think we often get close to it, and then cower away from it….or maybe I am just speaking from my own personal experience right now :)

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH…I love her Tammy:)))) She’s powerful, seductive, strong yet still with a hint of sensitivity & emotion in her eyes….almost like she’s pausing to deliberate something before taking action. She is an amazing epitome of Lillith & has a stunning balance of light & dark energy…everyone should embrace their inner Lillith, & if I had the chance I’d run up & embrace this picture….before nipping off with it into the distance to hang her over my bed:))) WOW x

  • I have to go off and read some Harry Potter to the kids, but thankyou for such an amazing comment, big :) and xo

    Exactly Tammy, my favourite rant right now- see my Facebook. Lol.
    And that directly gets in the way of SO many women from realising and embracing their true power. We all have this great fear that what we are, is somehow not what we should be. And what we think we are, is often light years away from our true selves. When you can truly embrace that, you unlock the key to a good deal of your own power.
