On the easle

With most of the art still hanging at Masterpiece Framing, 
I pulled paintings from "storage" to fill in the empty spaces.  
One space still available and unable to resist a canvas sale, I bought the 36x36 and it's on the easel.
Easel as my alter. 
I was feeling a bit sorry regarding not going to the summer solstice events.. yoga, fire ceremony.. 
until I realized I was participating.. here at home.. painting!  
It's my Summer Solstice painting, honoring Solar power, 
our own sacred power, 
solar plexus.. third chakra.. 
Fire. Passion.
That passion we hold, the fire in the belly, 
that which we MUST do
and send out into the world..
with love.
May your passions be spilled out and flow into the world to fill only those spots that you can fill.

back to painting...

Healing Hearts

I began from the center with a zentangle type image.. I looked at it as chaos or rather just a tangle of energy, but from it there is a sliver of white, not unlike a new moon's beginning.  Begin again.
And begin again is what I have done.  The show is up and now I have some time to do art again.
I usually have an intention of healing when I create a mandala.. sometimes it is just for myself for a centering, but this is for a good friend.   It is a mandala for healing of the heart.
Out of inner turmoil, we can move outwards to focus on the beauty that surrounds us and the love that we receive from others.  Grief, sorrow, pain.. all that comes and goes in this life, all that is taken from us unexpectedly.. suddenly.. we experience such deep loss and wonder how we will ever recover.
Love heals the  heart.
In time, the pain hopefully lessens and we can turn towards the beginning of healing.  We pray.  We listen.  We do something, anything to distract ourselves, but it is always there hiding in the corners, so call it out.  Feel what needs to be felt and turn it over to the Higher Powers, The Creative One, and co-create something together.
Make something BIG!
I made this for you, for healing your heart.
