Written in the traditional style of representing gods and saints across world religions, spiritual figures are drawn from cartoons, layers of transparent pigment and finished with gold leaf details.
LAND, SEA AND SKY
In oil paints, Sara Star expresses her impression of the divine forces of nature all around us, from the roaring waves of the Pacific ocean, the solemn trees of Mt. Hood national forest to the wide endless skies of John Day, Oregon.
The elegance of simple items, figurines, tools, stones and flowers arranged on homey surfaces sketched in oil colors as acts of altar creation. Places of devotion, contemplation and ritual you can lean upright or hang on your wall.
The artist shares her process on youtube currently. Meanwhile she is developing demonstrations, workshops and classes for the future.
"I love [Aphrodite] so much!!! It is still in a place of honor in our home."

On a spiritual and emotional level, the image profoundly depicts a sacred figure with whom many women already identify.
