Unified energies joyfully awakened

Unified energies joyfully awakened

As an artist I love to paint various subjects and one of them is the spiritual connecting of energies that I can’t say exactly what they are, only that I feel that sometimes the universe clicks into place to make things happen in certain directions. Maybe its just a whole batch of happy coincidences, maybe there is more to it….

Awakening the unified energies

Certainly when I visited Stonehenge some years ago on a bitterly cold bleak day I was aware of the belief of many humans before me who had felt the power and energy of that particular stone circle and I wanted to put all of that in a painting.

This is the painting I did of it, in watercolours, depicting the heaviness of the stones set deeply into the ground, and depicted the clouds above, ethereal but heavy and menacing too, as if crackling with a life force of their own, trailing down towards the magical stones below them. I called the painting “Awakening the unified energies” as the most apt title I could think for it.

The painting since then has been exhibited and shown in various venues but it didn’t awaken anything in anyone else until a few weeks ago when I happened to put it on my Facebook page to show it to someone in Kent who I had had a conversation with, regarding Stonehenge. That person didn’t pick up on the painting in any way.. which sometimes happens, I know that, its the way it is with art…

But someone else spotted it… and I could see by her reaction that it had talked to her, it had spoken, as paintings do, and that was due to her visit to these magical stones and her happy memories of that visit…

After a brief chat, we arranged the purchase and delivery and as requested I wrapped it up for her, to open on Christmas Day without knowing exactly what it looks like until she lays eyes on it. She has only seen the image of the painting on my Facebook page…

I am delighted, as I absolutely love it when someone reacts in such a positive way to something I have painted, and they understand the thoughts that I had, to painting it, and feel that same emotion themselves too… that for me is the most wonderful of feelings, of connections, and of unifying energies… 🙂

 

I've been an artist all of my life, and my paintings now hang on walls in Europe, USA and Canada. I'm working on getting them on the other continents! My wide range of artwork has been exhibited nearer to home in the East Midlands, with the Guild of Erotic Artists at Beaumont Hall Studios in Hertfordshire, and at "Erotica", Olympia, London. I have also been featured alongside my work in the Guild of Erotic Artists book (volume 2). I love to create dramatic interest in my pictures, whether it’s to paint an unusual landscape, or just to utilise dramatic lighting in my figure drawings or strong colour in my animal portraits. Delighting in the spontaneous tendencies of watercolour adds an interesting and distinctive look to my paintings, some of which are purposefully ambiguous, enabling the viewer to use their own interpretation of my artwork. I also love to hide images, and humour within my paintings, whether it’s a secret message, or an erotic couple hidden within a landscape, or even an erotic landscape where the couple are camouflaged as the features of the land itself. I am equally happy painting in oils, acrylics or watercolours and love to draw with pencil or ink. I have also developed the very effective method of drawing using white pencil on black card which creates dramatic pictures by just picking out where the light catches the body and leaving the rest of the image to the imagination, in darkness. I can also utilise many different styles, whether it is realistic, abstract, surrealistic, erotic, fantasy or camouflage art where something is hidden within the painting. I'm just passionate about my art, whatever I paint! But, it doesn't matter how many landscapes or pet portraits I paint, its always the erotic stuff that people are interested in! I started blogging to share some of the strange conversations I have with the people I meet. But its evolved into far more than that now.
