As you know, the feminine archetype of Lilith is found in Astrology, Mythology, and has one mention in the Bible as well. She is usually portrayed as an enraged woman with vengeance on her mind, in a word, a shrew, or even a devil.
Well, actually that view may also be used to describe astrological Venus, can’t it? It’s the ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ model of femininity which can be a b*tch for those fellows who fall afoul with their bad behavior against lovely lady Venus, planet of relationships and love in Astrology.
Yet my favorite model for Lilith has to be her ‘glamorous woman’ archetype with its hint of mystery and the best example I have created of this lovely, unfussy, pleasant Lilith is a new Cosmic Lilith Art Calendar 2011 with its pencil portraits of fanciful figure studies (‘pin-up girls’!), one for each month of 2011, as perpetrated for you by this artist and astrologer.
So if you, dear reader, are among the 17-and-older crowd, you are cordially invited to check out my Cosmic Lilith Art ladies for your wall for 2011 will be here before we know it!
‘Gas’ is Neptunian and so is Art…here’s a measily merging of the two in a shabby attempt to lighten one more than the other…

Well, I’ve just spent a good deal o’time posting http://starsoverwashington.blogspot.com/2007/11/astrology-of-gaseous-odor-in-newark.html and it occurred to me that you might be interested in some of the chart’s details for 11:00 am est, Saturday, Teminal B at the Airport in Newark, N.J.
Or not, as you prefer.
I am, however, about to publish in the next few minutes some Newly-minted Art (a small detail of which you see here) at:
…because I’ve been doing some drawing the last couple of days–pc been down so long, etc. I would appreciate your taking a peek if you have a mo to see a current perpetration done with my habitual Prismacolor oil and Rexel Derwent Watercolour pencils applied clumsily to black paper.
Bad News in Local Art Scene, Ga, USA: the black paper sketch pads I’ve been purchasing the last few years have been discontinued at Michaels’. Or is it, Michael’s ?
No matter how many Michaels you have, this sux for a particular pencil artist. It’s not enough I’ve not found the best black paper ever known–that which I could purchase in 1995-96, blackest of the black, velvet textured and with no undertones of red, brown, yellow, blue, or anything else to plague me by dimming colors.
Yet, I have a little paper still (I managed to score two sketchpads, 12″x12″), so I’m publ’ing a detail from a new draw-ring for you here at WordPress with full image to be found very soon at Cosmic Persona Designs, one of my art gallery blogs linked above.
My favorite drawing paper–discontinued!! I’m in a snit over it to the point of total miffdom.
And it’s tempting, of course, to give up all creative activities due to the oppressive shouldering of a massive sense of futility…but then they’d win by default.
