Leonie Bryant's Corner of Lemuria - Hermitage Art
The Hermitage Art Room attracts travellers from all over the world who have travelled with Sibyl, a twenty first century Enchanteur, who take pilgrims along the Soul Food Silk Road. The Art Room is just one of the sanctuaries where travellers have rested their weary bones. This was Leonie Bryant's (1942 - 2006) realm and her favourite place on the Silk Road. She is still here with us.

I posted this collage as my performance piece for the Gorgon at the House of Serpents.
The words on it may be hard to read. They are:
daring to reach for the stars
singleness of purpose
never fearling your own uniqueness
knowing when to stand tall and when to bend
thriving no matter what surrounds you.

Milagros are prayers of a sort, created in Mexico, and, I assume, other Latin American countries that are Catholic. They are often in the shape of the thing prayed for...eyes for good vision, hearts for safe journey through open heart surgery or love, etc...I loved this idea, and this hand is one of my visions of the milagro. Hands can plant all sorts of seeds, some of which I have listed around the border. May our hands be miracles of the everyday.

This is my doll who I was inspired to create - see her story at The House of Baba Yaga

Winter is a Memory
off my gourd?
I've always loved gourds, but have never been able to explain why. I think they're fascinating. These were the first drawings I tried with color pencils. My husband, lovingly insinuating that I was going somewhat crazy with my gourd fixation, said "I think you're off your gourd."
It's been a while since I've drawn anything. This journey is inspiring me to pick up my pencils again.
