Gemini 1

Watercolours, markers and colour pencils on 100% hotpressed cotton, 9 by 12 inches. Reversible composition. (I’ve hung this at events both ways!)

I painted the twins as a male and female, as opposed to the famous Castor and Pollux (both male) twins of the constellation. There is another version of the Gemini twins as male and female twins in one egg. (For some fascinating reading: you can read Brian Clarke’s Gemini: The Search for the Missing Twin.) I was inspired to depict entanglement and separation, and the search for re-union.

My other reversible painting is Vesica Pisces, which emphasizes the water element of yin and yang.

    thank you dear Janet, for sending out love and light in your creatiions…. every single time. This particular post touched me deeply. My youngest (now 9) is gemini. He came after I lost twins two 2 years prior to his birth. As human beings we get to choose the meaning we give to this crazy miraculous and painful world, and the meaning I assigned my son’s birth as it related to the loss of my twins was that he was not to be an actual twin, but to be born in the sign of twins. I look forward to reading Brian’s writing and thank you always for the brightness, hope and wisdom you bring to my heart and to mama earth. Blessings to you and yours. ~Becky
