Eclipses - Powerful Turning Points: Barbara Goldsmith - video

Golden Chanterelles (excerpt) by Jude Cowell; pencil on paper; All Rights Reserved.

Feb 27, 2016: our next Solar Eclipse manifests on March 9, 2016 @19Pisces so perhaps some information about eclipses (often called 'wild cards' of the Universe for their quirky Uranian vibes that disrupt, perhaps catalyze conditions, and reveal secrets) is in order so here's a previous Barbara Goldsmith presentation on eclipses in case you missed it:

Recommended: Political Astrology at Stars Over Washington and on a lighter note, Neptune's Silver Screen.

That's March 8th in the US.

Cosmic Persona Designs collection closes for good


As you can see, this art gallery is closed until further notice. My Chiffonery, Cosmic Lilith, and Sexy-Fun Art drawings are apparently too racy for go^gle even behind an 'adult warning' notice but with children online, it's completely understandable (I'm a mom, too.)

So if you somehow landed here expecting to view a little Art, you may wish to mosey over and browse a few images at FaceBook but be aware that a new page has been published: Strickland Genealogy. Also, my portfolio 'jude cowell' is searchable at Red Bubble if you know your way 'round there!

Plus, you'll most often find me at two spots: my Political Astrology website Stars Over Washington and Neptune's Silver Screen for films, trailers, bios, and horoscopes of Classic Film Stars!

'Genevieve' of the Brooklyn Art Library New York

Genevieve's portrait is the first addition here at Cosmic Persona Designs since August 16, 2012 and it's hard to believe that I've been AWOL from CPD for so many moons. Naturally, you are pardoned for not noticing my absence or a dearth of illustrations!

And while it's true that most of my now-limited online hours have been spent over at Stars Over Washington or on Jude's Threshold (an astrological reference to Saturn as gatekeeper of the Unconscious), 'busy elsewhere' is only poor justification for deserting what is actually my first-ever blog, an art gallery blog, set up in June 2005. Over 8 years ago!

So if you will accept my expression of regret upon this score, perhaps a gander at the following pencil portrait of Genevieve published here might make up for a little of my scandalously lackadaisical neglect of CPD! jc

Genevieve, a previously published colored pencil and pen portrait on white paper (plus, some collaging) by Jude Cowell 2013+. This drawing and others are viewable ~in person~ if you ask to see my Sketchbook Project titled Fractured Fashions 2012 (7" x 5"...tiny!) at the Brooklyn Art Library NYC...why, it would be almost as if you and I were visiting together so please drop by if you should find yourself in the neighborhood and feeling in an art browsing mood!

Oh! And Happy New Year to All if I don't return to CPD before 2014!

~:~

Coming Soon: a brand new venue for Jude Cowell Art at Fine Art America! I'm trusting that open spaces will soon appear in my crowded schedule so that an interesting page may be put together for viewers with Dreamyfish Art tropical fish portraits the first illustrations to appear in the gallery, so do float by whenever you can!

Cosmic Persona Designs dissed for Political Astrology's sake?

Confession: since the 2012 political campaign has heated up these last several months, I've been so busy blogging through the lens of Political Astrology that once I completed my Sketchbook Project 2012 in April and sent it along, my drawing table has become little more than a gi-huge dust collector, at least until the debates, Election Day 2012, two eclipses in November, and Winter Solstice 2012 are over!

In fact, there's such a plethora of political and cosmic events to writer about that I've begun a Political Astrology Newsletter for serious readers who wish to subscribe for more in-depth astro-details.

Not to be outdone by my own very self, I hereby post one of the designs from the pages of my Sketchbook Project, Fractured Fashions 2012:

Now, cats'n'kitties, enjoy a new cycle of activity which starts with tomorrow's New Moon in joyful, playful Leo!

Practice drawing for Sketchbook Project 2012?

This weekend I began practice drawing--doodling, really--on white paper since I tend to draw on black paper 99% of the time yet to take part in Arthouse's Sketchbook project due April 30, 2012, sheets of white paper must turn up on my drafting table.

Here you see Genevieve, a simple portrait of what seems to be a rather anxious young lady although this style and theme of subject may not be at all what turns up in my Sketchbook by April!


Genevieve: black gel pen on white paper colored with Prismacolor oil and Rexel Derwent watercolour pencils by Jude Cowell 2011.

Here's info on the 2012 Sketchbook project if you wish to check it out. Fiction is part of it as well, if you don't draw but love to read and write!

And who doesn't, really?

Plus, mosey on over to Red Bubble, an artists' site where I first discovered Arthouse's excellent Sketchbook project...

New Art on-canvas! 'Bellatrix w Orion' by Jude Cowell

A new illustration has arrived and is available on-canvas, as you see!



Not much to see here so you may want to sashay over to my Zazzle Art Boutique for a full view of my latest drawing 'Bellatrix w Orion' or, you may also peek just below for a partial view of Bellatrix lounging about in a cosmic sort of fashion, constellation Orion out the window!



Why, I do believe she's tickling Orion's toe...

A Big Hi! to all my friends at Red Bubble and thanx a bunch for dropping in to Cosmic Persona Designs! Hope slipping beyond Blogger's Adult Content Warning wasn't overly stressful or scary for after all, it's only Art, right?

Relax Y'all,

Jude

Chantal by Window (sexy-fun art by Jude Cowell)

Here's a partial view of a new drawing Chantal by Window which I'm publishing today because I just realized it's been since April 2011 that Cosmic Persona Designs has gained a new portrait for its collection!

The primary reason I've been away from this, my very first blog (June 2005!) is that there's been so many events occurring in Washington DC and elsewhere that 90% of my blogging time is taken up with reading Politics, studying horoscopes, and typing articles over at Stars Over Washington which I created in October 2005 to help diffuse frustrations over what I then saw as a fascist direction being forced upon the American people by an allegedly legitimate president. (Even now I loathe typing you-know-whose war-mongering, draft-dodging name.)

Note: SO'W is written in English so you don't have to speak 'astrologese' to read articles there. But a secret desire to peek under the hood of Politics using the lens of Astrology is invaluable for politicians who infest our nation's capital deserve it! And sadly, the 'fascist' direction of the US (of the world) becomes more apparent each day unless we-the-people change it.

So the other 10% of blogging time is divided between my 'tapestry blog' Jude's Threshold (Art, Astrology, Politics, & News), a crazy Sciencey-Poemy blog Woolly Mammoth Chronicles (where I fret rhymily over mammoth cloning & post Science videos & stuff), and my Jude Cowell Art Shop which is hosted by the excellent Zazzle.com and is handily open for art browsing 24/7.

Hope you'll think to drop by any of these spots where you'll find me most often on the Web! For you know I'll be missing you until you do... Jude
