Pray to the Moon when She is round,
Luck with you will then abound,
What you seek for shall be found
On the sea or solid ground.

Friends in Artistic Places: The Visual Bard

I recently discovered the Pagan Blog Prompts site & have been enjoying responding to the weekly prompt when I have the time. This week the theme is "Artwork." I have been looking for an opportunity to share a handful of favorite artists, both modern & historical (...envision me filled with illusions of featuring each in vast detail...), but time & children are not in favor of such a venture. I decided to compromise, working four of them into my prompt response & sharing a wee bit of background for each. However, time & children are still not in favor of my plans. (Besides, I am still waiting on requests I sent for permission to use artwork.) So, like the rings, there can only be one.

Without further ado, I am so pleased present:

Alica Wolter-Hausser, visual bard & personal friend. She is a mother, wife & artist making her home up here in the blessed Last Frontier. She is also the bee's knees -- so is her imagery. Her artwork reflects Celtic & Druidic influences as well as her lifelong love of horses. Raised in California, Utah & Alaska, she has been drawing since she was 3 years old. She earned a BFA in Printmaking & currently maintains an Etsy shop. She works in many mediums, describing herself as having "artist ADD" an approach that I think makes for many creative results. I could ramble on, but I think it would be best to just let her works speak for themselves. (Click on images to see larger.)

What awesome artwork! Beautiful choices. The horse one is especially striking.

Isn't it? I love her horses & I am not even a horsey-gal. She has one in her Etsy shop that reminds me of Celtic knots only it is horses swirling about. It is fantastic & would most excellent on my wall if I had the spare change about, lol.
