It is really raining outside, a great time to stay inside, and paint the sky what ever colour I want!! That is what I call artistic expression!! ...oh, and I have the artistic license. Tee..hee.
This piece is titled, "Paradise thru Laila's Eyes". Laila was/is my cousin, who passed away June 2015. I loved her dearly. During one of my meditations at the beginning of 2016, I had questions for her. Like how are you feeling, where are you? I wanted to make sure she was in a happy place. Where does your spirit go when your body has expired? These were some of the questions I had for her.
Lucky for me during my meditation she took my hand and we went for a walk on the beach, (her beach in paradise). She showed me her happiness, and I felt the love in my heart. She said she was in a place where she felt such love, joy, happiness, bliss and surrounded by magical beings.
The easiest way for me to show people in my life exactly what she said to me, was to paint it. Make sure you look closely for the magickal beings floating in the sky, mountains and flowers. The meditation lasted for 2 hours!! There was many feelings shared. She was so excited.
I had tears streaming down my face when the meditation was done, but they were tears of happiness, knowing my cousin was in a happy and loving place surrounded by magical beings.
My cousin spirit is "alive" in the mystical world in a very loving place and I am so happy about that!!
Whether this is a true fact or not, it does not matter. For it makes me happy and I know in my heart of hearts that Laila's spirit and energy is always with me.
With all my love,

It seems as I clear more of the skeletons and deal with the "stuff" in my life it comes out in my artwork!!!! As I evolve and grow spiritually and intellectually I enjoy painting more and more!!
When I have no idea what to do next in my life I paint and write in my journal. I have these amazing ideas for new shows, studio gallery spaces.
Big plans for the future. I am very fortunate to have some wonderfully talented people in my circle of friends. They don't know it yet but they are all part of my new vision for a interactive studio Gallery space. I consider them to be my marketing managers. My flock of geese. I like the idea of a the V formation the geese fly in. Everyone takes turns being the leader of the group. Because we are all excellent leaders!
But of course, I am getting off topic, I want to share with you my new style of painting. Each piece I have painted this year has ghost like images in the background. Before I start a piece, I actually think about images in my head, and look for things in nature. I am mostly inspired my nature by the way. I love bright colours and I notice things as I am out walking. As I meditate images come to me of what I feel in pictures. Like the roses, a rose is love. I had the feeling I wanted to share with the world how I felt about the universe and all the wonderful people I am surrounded by on a daily basis. I always listen to music and this piece I was listening to love songs, OF COURSE!!! Like Barry White, Al Green and Frank Sinatra!! I will dance and twirl .... look at my painting in progress and see images that must come out. I high light them so they are visible if you look for them. I sometimes don't know when to put the brush down, because I keep seeing more images. This one has at least 10 so far and I am not quite finished.
Stay tuned... for my next blog when I up load the finished piece. How many angels, dancers, horses, girls, and men can you see?
Artistically yours always,
