Thinking up imagery

Some images to work with

I am starting two paintings about good and evil, but they have gravitated to images of what good might look like as it is envisioned in a world where women make the rules. My ideas so far have included women healing one another; animals bringing love into the world; women as active heroines, like Joan of Arc. Basically, I want to populate my paintings with the opposite of what I have been looking at since I was a child: that is, images of men pursuing women, men waging war, naked women running scared, or looking sexy for a male viewer.
