Annunciation: Thorns of Promotion

Annunciation

I’m starting to realize that I am on a Quest. Sometimes the images rise up out of the mists and sometimes they beckon from artists past, signs along the way to be recognized and shared.

I wasn’t sure why the crown of thorns wanted to be included in this painting. However, over the months it took to paint this image on my lunch hours and weekends, I was promoted three times at my place of work.  And, the third promotion, which was like a bolt from the sky on my birthday, definitely came with a crown of thorns. Sometimes I feel the blood dripping into my eyes.

Does the dream precede the event?

Is the child a Christ?

Or, is this her creative spirit

coming into being?

She is hungry to go forward.

Painting is Meditation

Standard
Light Upon The Waters

Light Upon the Waters

There is something very meditative about painting. The releasing of anxieties as one gives up all angst and simply trusts the Muses to lead the way.

hand mudra for energy

Mudra

For those of you who may want a quick boost of energy, this hand position works amazingly well. I always feel as if I’ve plugged into a circuit of energy that is both grounding and calming when I touch the tip of my thumb to tip of ring finger. Called the Surya or Ravi Mudra, it is recommended to do this for 15 minutes during meditation. Give it a try, I think you’ll be surprised.

We all have borders to keep us secure in our known worlds, safely not advancing. What borders are you thinking of crossing?
