Thunder Woman & Bird Grandmother

I painted this image in a time of severe difficulty. I didn't intend to depict a rock & a hard place, but there it is.

The story that this Blue Coyote series illustrates often gives the sense that spirit & animal guides are all around, ready & willing to help us.

In this 15 x 11" watercolor, Thunder Woman looks stunned, maybe overwhelmed by challenges whose solution eludes her. Bird Grandmother steadies her, brings her endurance to see a way.

A small plant & many birds connect her to life & happiness, even in this barren place.
