This painting feels very special to me.
It was inspired by meditation all the time as I painted. It was during this painting that I realized from deep within that painting is something that has to be “felt” when it is created more than taught. No one can teach us how to create only how to expereince the process…. from a place that words are often hard to describe.
I myself felt “held” and “supported” as I painted her. I felt enveloped by a beautiful peaceful energy which stayed with me all day and into the next day…. like a deep essence of the Divine.
The painting felt like it was channelled through me constantly as I sat at my easel.
The morning I began this painting was a morning when I my first waking moment was a very intuitive one. I “received” a sacred symbol and the colour blue which I saw with my “inner vision”. I knew intuitively that I needed to work with this symbol and this colour today. So I painted the symbol below the painting first as the inspiration behind this creation.
The sacred symbol represents the closing off of a cycle and a new one beginning. The symbol holds a message to anchor into and embody more of who we are meant to be in order to receive the deepest Joy from Life. To become fully grounded in this Higher calling. The colour blue energetically symbolizes our throat chakra …our ability to easily communicate our essence…. our truth so that we can joyfully be of service and receive from Life..
This was such a beautiful experience painting her and it also felt unexpectedly cleansing and deeply calming as I mentioned earlier.
She was also created days after the New Moon in Feb. I could feel the energy of this cycle so intensely as the moon began growing, moving toward the Full moon. (birth and expansiveness)
We are constantly birthing more of who we are meant to be.
She is No 38/100 #expressionsoflove – a painting project I am currently doing.
One of the things that happened for me was I let go of the usual way that hair needs to be painted. Her hair is quite blue and it felt liberating to paint this because this was the colour needed for this painting. Also the hands could have had more detail but one of the things that happens when I paint is that I try to let go and not create perfection. When a painting feels energetically completed, I don’t spend more time than is needed perfecting it. This also feels liberating as I listen intuitively.
She is available as an original and print from my etsy shop. You can also contact me if you would like a journal created with her on the cover.
I can also create a custom painting for you.
