One of the most powerful images found in the Triptych Grail is of Moses and the burning bush. We see the Menorah painted plain as day with the inscription “ehyeh asher ehyeh” at its center. This is such a prolific message outlined here. Feel free to click the link for more.
Anna May’s depiction of Queen Sheba is so prolific because of how many layers she encoded into this one corner of the painting. We have the clear imagery of the Divine Feminine- as explained in the post on Solomon, Hiram, & Sheba– directing the inward and outward path of the mystic evident in the blue […]

At some point she entered into a domestic partnership with Thaddeus von Rychter and the couple moved to East Jerusalem. It was here she painted several pieces of the Holy Land in watercolor many of which are still up for […]
