Good morning! Here's a bas relief I created in 2003

way long ago, yes I'm old.

Here is Dryad, a bas relief. One finished and one in progress.

Hi everyone. Here's an image I made back in 2013

The original was a drawing, colored in with colored pencils, scanned into Photoshop, and then I created the background. 8" x 10"

I haven't shared any art in over 2 years, so I'm about to finish a sculpture and thought I'd show you a bit of my art.

Here's a livestream of the UN




I hope this is the right place to share it.

Report: DeSantis Gambles Fla. Pension Funds on "Alternative Investments", Launders Kickbacks Through

https://politizoom.com/report-desantis-gambles-fla-pension-funds-on-alternative-investments-launders-kickbacks-through-republican-governors-association/

"FLORIDA GOVERNOR AND REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFUL RON DESANTIS HAS BEEN CRUSADING AGAINST “WOKE” INVESTMENTS FOR ALLEGEDLY THREATENING HIS STATE EMPLOYEES’ RETIREMENT FUNDS. BUT THE MOST IMMINENT THREAT TO FLORIDA PUBLIC EMPLOYEES’ RETIREMENT DOLLARS APPEARS TO BE THE MASSIVE STATE PENSION INVESTMENTS THAT HAVE GONE TO SOME OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY’S WALL STREET DONORS UNDER DESANTIS’ WATCH.

DESPITE A FEDERAL ANTI-CORRUPTION RULE DESIGNED TO PREVENT DONORS FROM RECEIVING PENSION INVESTMENTS, PRIVATE EQUITY EXECUTIVES HAVE DONATED MILLIONS TO POLITICAL GROUPS SUPPORTING DESANTIS, ALL WHILE THE GOVERNOR OVERSAW THE TRANSFER OF MORE THAN $1 BILLION OF FLORIDA PUBLIC EMPLOYEES’ RETIREMENT DOLLARS INTO THESE DONORS’ HIGH-FEE, HIGH-RISK “ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS.

A LEVER REVIEW FOUND THAT HAD THE STATE PENSION FUND INSTEAD BEEN INVESTED IN A SIMPLE, LOW-COST INDEX FUND, COMPARED TO ITS PRESENT MIX OF HOLDINGS, TEACHERS, POLICE OFFICERS, AND OTHER STATE EMPLOYEES WOULD HAVE ABOUT $10 BILLION MORE IN THEIR RETIREMENT FUNDS.“

About Goddessartist

Hi everyone. I'm an artist and a grandma. My other half and I live on an island outside of Tacoma and Seattle. Both of my daughters, grandsons and son in law live here as well. Z, my partner, is also an artist, and was a mental health specialist for 30 years. He's Jewish. Most people call me a witch ;). I've had the handle goddessartist since 1998, as I was creating Goddess art dolls and showing them in Manhattan every year. I'm goddessartist across all platforms. I've followed DU for the past 19 or so years. I was here many years ago as Americana, but really never posted. DU is my first visit every morning. I'm so grateful to everyone on this site. Rebecca
