This is one of my favorite self-portraits.  There's Betty in the goddess pose...with goddess colors...her head shaved...in perfect balance.

Carlin Darling, I have never seen myself as a Goddess.

But rather as one of her working Priestesses. No one in their right mind would opt to be any kind of a diety. What a thankless job! I did enjoy seeing that art again. I have no idea what I was trying to convey. Maybe something about a peaceful state of meditation? The image definitely comes from my unconscious mind and remains as mysterious to me as to anyone else. That's why I love art.
