Creativity in Art and ~ The WOMAN

On one rainy afternoon  I wanted to paint, yet as reached up into the top of my cupboard for a new canvas, out popped among them was this old painting I did when I was messing about one day quite a few years ago now.  

I had never really liked the painting, and have never hung it, but I had hidden it away among my new canvas’ thinking one day I would paint over it. 

Rainbow Angel.. Some of my more abstract art I did several years ago

I looked hard at it and thought well today is the day to rework it..  And as I painted I jotted down my thoughts as different feelings raced through my mind as I altered it to become the finished new painting you see below at the bottom of this post.. 

Here are the words that came to me while painting and when I had finished it.. They speak of the returning feminine energies, and how each of us hold these energies whether we are female or male…    So I give you.. 

The Woman

 

The Woman with closed eyes sits in the circle of dancing light

She breathes in her femininity as she let go of all material form

Naked, she pulls around her energy cloak of rainbows as she prepares her Earth Song

She holds out her hands softly at her sides.

As she rocks gently back and forth, listening to her beating heart.

It matches its rhythm with that of her Earth Mother.

Generations before her have awaited

this time, when the feminine will rise again.

Their Compassion, love and strength will bring back the light from the shadows of the past

~~

The Woman focuses her inner vision upon the Stars, and her low hum begins to fill the vortex of space surrounding her Aura.

With Dancing spectrum’s that spin in a Kaleidoscope of changing hues. Mixing and blending, the Woman weaves each thread with the notes of Love.

Each Chord a blend of forgiveness to each deed against the feminine energies. Her face is still, almost translucent as she let go of Anger, bitterness and sorrow.

The woman is no longer tied to the Earth but becomes detached from All Fear

Replenishing her emotions only with Love , Acceptance and Gratitude

The Vortex spins ever faster as time slips away, She gives thanks for all she has been and to all she is yet to become.

Knowing infinity will hold her forever in the moment of Now..

The Woman ~ Feminine Energies ~ Painting in Acrylics 40cms x 30 cms

If I am late answering any of your comments here and catching up with you.  It is because I am pursuing my own Earth Song…  Enjoying Summer, Family time of special Birthdays,  and of course keeping up with my Garden posts of which you will find at Dreamwalker’s Garden 

Love and Blessing

~Sue~  

 

Love on Ice..

The Canvas I started of a snowy scene. Canvas size 40cms x 29cms

 

Blank Canvas of white before me looms bare

As into the distance of mind I stare

My brush takes on colour as mountains arise

As storm clouds of grey sweep across the blue skies.

~

Soon two figures, then three are penned in

And before I know it emerge a family of Penguins

Cuddling up close, just as proud as can be

As Mother returns safe, from her fishing in the Sea

One Penguin complete and another beginning.

 

Dad was so proud as he looked after Son

In a winter so harsh as the world blocked the Sun

Resilient and steadfast his back to the storm

The colony of Emperors, protecting new-borns

~

Nature is Miraculous as the odds against you stack

As you shuffle on heels, taking turns at the back

Of circles so dense, they huddle to keep warm

Awaiting the time that their mates may return

Now both Adult Penguins are completed

 

From deep in the ocean, weeks turn into months

Braving all predators, Mothers come back looking plump

Baring their catch, they walk and they slide

It’s a miracle really, they find their mates left behind.

~

What joy in their cries from a distance so far

Reuniting in love as daylight replaces stars

A family together before they must part

When Dad takes his leave for his fishing must start

And so is the cycle in the struggle to survive

The Penguin stands tall in his efforts to thrive

So when you think your own life maybe rough

Just think of the Penguin, for their Life is Tough.

This appears darker than the rest of the photos simply because of the light in the room was fading at the time I took it without a flash. Also note, I altered the background to make them appear on a cliff of ice, with icebergs behind them.

The above art is part of a present for my sisters birthday soon.. She has overcome many obstacles in her Life and she also collects little Penguins.. I was not surprised to learn the meaning Penguins hold as a totem, given that she has overcome, cancer, and many other things during her lifetime. I am so proud of her and the inspiration she has given me.. She always calls me her ‘Mother’ for as children I would often find myself in that role.. For me she is the best possible sister anyone could have.. 

  And its ok as she doesn’t read my posts.. So the surprise will still be in place. 

“The period of darkness that you’ve been experiencing is now ending. There is light at the end of this tunnel!”

-Penguin

The above quote and the interesting read about the Penguin meaning is very symbolic right now. So no wonder I was inspired to paint Penguins..

The Feather that spoke..

Feather from Heaven

Today I found myself sharing a true story with a blogging friend.  So I thought I would share it again here. For it may give someone the heart to look for the hidden Signs that our Guardian Angels/Universe/Source throws in our direction, If only we take the time to Look and Listen.

Last week I was so depressed it was like I was grieving for someone.. I didn’t want to even get out of bed in the mornings.. My bones ached as I thought my Fibromyalgia was starting another flare up.. I knew the energies were changing and affecting our bodies and so set about trying to alter my mind set as I didn’t want to fall into this particular pit again.

Yet it seems that no matter how many times I tried to disconnect from the world to lift my spirits, Negative news seemed to follow me and bog me down as if I were living out other people’s experiences.

News items I was trying to avoid would invade my space.. And the more weight seemed to load onto my chest to the point I felt physically constricted..  I couldn’t shake it off.. I tried watching old movies  on DVDs that had  comedy in them to make me laugh  and I would walk out in Nature, yet still I had this heart ache that wouldn’t go away..

So I Asked my own healing Angels to come forward and help, I reverted back to my daily meditation practice going right back to basics.. To clear my aura, putting on my ‘Light Body’ Grounding myself and remembering to put protection around me.. I even had salt baths. And I did clearing exercises to separate cording’s both past and present.

Last week we had a big storm called Storm Doris.. Whose winds were gusting up to 90mph.. I asked for protection around our home and those of family and friends. And thankfully we had no damage, yet many did with fences and glass broken in greenhouses, trees felled and one lady lost her life to flying debris in another part of the country.

The weird thing was, that as the storm was dying down, A large white feather dropped onto my back patio.. It stuck to the floor with the rain. ( I have long collected feathers, and see them as a sign from my angels.. ) So I went to pick  it up and dried it off..

The next day in the very same spot.. The VERY same spot.. I saw what appeared a flower on a stem, it looked like sweet-peas. But when I bent to pick it up it was made out of plastic, it wasn’t sweet-peas, but a stem of bleeding hearts.

At the time I threw it in the bin, thinking it was the wind which had blown it But the winds had long died down over night .. But all day I could not stop thinking about it so looked up the meaning on line. Of the Bleeding hearts flower. Which among many other things said ( Bleeding Heart helps bring peace, harmony and balance to people’s heart, allowing a person to perceive love on many levels: of self, others, city, country, environment and beyond.) – See more HERE

So here is the feather I painted. And in doing so the calm and healing soothed my soul as I allowed back in the peace as I listened once again as I painted this feather spoke deep to my heart..

Above are some of the images from sections a two paintings I have recently done.. Over the next few posts I will be exploring more of each section and sharing with you some of the thoughts I had while I sat with paint brush in hand..  And it may even weave into a story.. I don’t know yet.. I am still going within the flow of it.. 

If I appear quieter than usual, this is what is keeping me busy at the moment.. 

Have a Beautiful Weekend..

Are There Fairies At The Bottom of Your Garden?

We had our Granddaughter stop over, and we spent a wonderful day doing many things, but I had promised her she could help paint a small birdhouse. The birdhouse had been on the wall for over two year waiting for it to be taken over as a nesting site.. As there were still no takers this year, I asked my Husband to take it down as I had other plans for it. 

We set to with paint and brushes while my granddaughter gave it white walls and a green roof.  She wanted a Fairy House 

Enjoying Painting.

We did many other things too, such as go and buy some new fish for the tropical tank and outside pond. Which she supervised to ensure they settled into their new homes. We played Fairy Princesses and hide and seek among many other things. 

Grandma got busy in-between other chores to paint the windows and door and put a coat of varnish on it over the next couple of wet days .

So after the rainy weather and wind had died down Grandma got busy outside and this is the result 

The Fairy House put up in the garden

The Gnome made sure the ladder was secure for the Fairy

Fairy 2

Everything looks tickety-boo

And I am sure she will soon settle into her new home

And I am sure she will soon settle into her new home

Fairy and Gnome have good company with Buddha to watch over them both.

I hope you enjoyed meeting the Fairy at the bottom of our garden.. And should you wish to see how the Veggies are growing in the allotments.. Then Press this link HERE to take you to the allotment photo’s all is now nearly set.. And growing nicely.

Oh and I saw my little Wood-mouse this morning sat on the bird feeder eating grain.. He paused as I paused, 🙂 as he stuffed his mouth , we both looked at each other for a second then he scurried back into the wood pile.. 🙂  Lovely to see him/her again.

I hope you are all having a Fantastic Week..

Enjoy Life and Live it well and be good to one another!

Blessings

Creative Captures.. Happy Halloween Everyone

You would think that Retirement would lend itself to giving you more time . Yet as my Hubby said when upon retiring several years ago he wondered how he had found time to go to work?.

Life in the Dreamwalker household has been busy busy to say the least since I took the plunge and retired.. I still have lots of catching up  to do with your beautiful blogs . And for all those who have taken the time to visit my posts I am in the process of returning your kindness..  But for now I will leave you with a flavour of what I have been up to mostly  in picture format.

So along with alterations around our home, we have been putting the home garden to bed for winter and sorting out the allotments. Hubby moved a row of raspberry shrubs as we learn by our mistakes as they grew I got nicely tangled in their tendrils.. So more  space has been created between them and a support made for the Logan Berries..

Before 
Fruit Bushes, Black and Red currant and Raspberries,  this is the view from the sheds looking back up the garden.

  After.

Fruit Bushes tied up and moved to create more space for picking.

I have also been busy in the evenings as those darker nights draw in. I am in the process of Knitting a Baby shawl which I was requested to knit. I have about another 15cms to go then it will measure  a metre in length.. I then have to knit a boarder which will then be sewn all the way around it.. So still a ways to finish.

 And Lastly.. wishing you ALL a HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Below is my Granddaughter who over her last few visits has been busy with me Baking and tasting
