According to author Robert Mcfarlane, viriditas is “the spiritually invigorating power of (divine) nature; ‘truth of greenness’ (Hildegard of Bingen, 1098-1179)”. This is my first blog, so I am sharing this mixed media drawing that was drawn in my favourite mixed media blend (Fountain pen & ink, coloured pencil, and Japanese Acryl gouache).
This tiny possum is a night glider. Under the magic of a full moon he is about launch himself, and fly out into an unknown, perilous night. But this moment before leaping out is full of potentiality, or the coiled magic of endless possibilities. This moment of transformation/transition is called liminality (more on this in later blogs).
