Cover of the current issue of SageWoman, titled "Sanctuary."

Lady of Protection by Tanya Torres, pencil on BFK Rives paper, approx. "7 x 6", 2011.
The end of 2012 has brought many joys! Today, I received copies of SageWoman Magazine containing my artwork and an article where I share one of my art and magic techniques. I have read SageWoman for more than 10 years and always wanted to send "something," but it was only last year that I was able to send a submission, when I had a bout of inspiration to publish my art and writing everywhere!

For the drawing, I was inspired by the proposed title "Protection," which then turned into "Sanctuary." The image relates to both titles since this woman is a representation of the person I used to meet in my meditations during the time I was receiving cancer treatment. She would infuse me with her green energy and take me to a "sanctuary," an enclosure where I would bathe in healing waters. Here she is sitting on the rock where she used to sit when she held my hands. I would be sitting right in front of her. Her hair and dress where rougher and wilder, but I like drawing leaves, and this is how she came out.

Taíno Sun Muse

Taíno Sun Muse, acrylic on tile, "6 x 6", 2012.

I just wanted to share the Taíno Sun Muse, at home now with Ana Alicea, the person who inspired me to keep making all these tiles with her continued support. Thank you Ana!
