Recently, as I stood in my art room, contemplating the swirl of potential paintings inside me, my inner muse began lining up which would manifest first on the canvas. I began to feel as if my feet were growing roots into the Earth, anchoring me in. Intuitively, I felt the big message was that much more is to come, so stay centered without stemming the creative flow. These moments of profound sense of being never cease to amaze me.
One personal important painting already has it’s beginnings on a 24 x 36 canvas sitting on my easel….the emergence of a visionary depiction of my wolf guardian on the edge of a wood, silently watching me. This vision appeared to me as I drifted into his realm during an acupuncture session. The charcoal sketch is already exuding the energy of his wolf spirit. It encourages me to stay focused and in tune with my inner guidance as I begin the painting process. It’s taken some time to pull the vision out of me from when it first appeared, yet here it comes at the precise moment of the Full Wolf Moon of 2018. The synchronicity of this painting’s appearance is like a personal portend of things to come in the new year and I hope to share more of my creative energy on this blog in more regular monthly posts.
Universal Energy for 2018: 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 11
“In numerology the number 11 is a Master Number – ‘Master’ meaning it is of intense/high vibrational frequency and works within the aetherial, magical and transcendental realms of creation. Master numbers possess great potential for learning and growth, and can bring major transformations in your life.
The number 11 is the most intuitive number and is a clear channel to the subconscious. It is the number of leadership, personal power and spiritual truths.” ~ Simone Matthews, Numerologist at www.universallfetools.com
2017 was a tough year for many on our world. It was a year of wake up calls and change, destruction and renewal. A painting that I completed just before the Northern California fires close to home, was entitled “Rebirth”. It is an expression of beings gestating in pods floating in the cosmic soup of a universe. Another synchronistic painting! Each year we go through a ritual of renewal and rebirth. What we choose forms our path. May our wisdom prevail in our choices.
REBIRTH: Acrylic on Canvas, 2017
- HCA Exhibit: In January, I am excited to be part of the Healdsburg Center for the Arts annual Members Exhibition, entitled “Expressions”. This is my first participation in this wonderful gallery. The show runs from January 13 through February 4, 2018. If you are in the area, please stop by to enjoy the wonderful talent of local artists
- Fabric Art: Potential plans to rejoin Made Local Marketplace in Santa Rosa this year with new fabric portfolio creations. I’m currently working on making items, creatively utilizing my abundant supply of fabric remnants. I also hope to do more fabric collage art. Watch for future blog featuring these items.
- Canvas Floor Cloths: In 2016 I started a series of creating 12 canvas rugs, but never completed more than 4; this year, I hope to pick up on that to complete the series. They are intense and time consuming to create, but I’m passionate about them!
- Joining Galleries: I have a goal for 2018 to join more local galleries and answer “calls for artists” ads. Stay tuned for more on my progress to get myself out there!
- More Blogs! I’ve been lax in writing blogs on this site, but am setting the intention to write at least one a month. Also coming is a revamp of my website with the help of a more skilled webmaster!
As I look at the potential of 2018 before me, I begin to understand how important it is to give freedom to one’s creative flow, staying tuned to that personal power and open to growth that raises one higher. In that process, we leave the door open to welcome the circumstances and people that will enhance our lives and personal growth. We are magnets of the energy we exude. May we keep our energy at the higher vibrations.
Wishing all who visit here a magical 2018 filled with creative potential! Shine your light. Thank you for your support.
