Today's Picture: Autumn Quartet

Back to painting & mixed media after a break, I've created this lovely 10x10 stretched canvas as a ode to my favorite season!

A quartet of four stately trees, each with their foliage ablaze in the oranges, yellows, and deep greens of summer-into-fall, stand in a dreamy, fantasy park-like setting. Metallic colors on the tree trunks and background provide a luminous glow. A little bit abstract, a little bit primitive, and lot of impressionism went into the spontaneous style of this original art piece, perfect for those who love the autumn season!

For more details and to purchase this original artwork, see the product page HERE at my Zibbet store. Or, check out all of my Fine Art Originals for sale on Zibbet.

In related news ~ I've re-upped my membership in the Daily Paintworks art sale and auction site! Check out my DPW Gallery, which includes this piece along with others I've made over the past year. And while you're there - I have a auction going for my concept-art mini piece, For Whatever Reason:

This might be a great way to pick up an affordable gift for the art lover on your list! See the auction info and bidding page HERE.

Sneak Peek at my next reveal - coming up, the Shawl of Protection and Wisdom (Round 2)

Cross-posted from my Patreon page blog... 

After an unwanted but unavoidable hiatus (due to life, jury duty, and a sick kitty), I'm back to finishing the products for Round 2 of my Patreon project! The theme for Round 2 is "protection and wisdom" and the colors are blue and purple.

With the shawl (shown above) nearly completed - it just needs some finishing work - I wanted to give you a little taste and whet your appetite. The blue and purple colors are accented with dashes of white, and even a little touch of green to sooth the heart chakra. And the fine, lightweight cotton-blend yarn makes this shawl feel soft, warm, light, and luscious ....

Want to see more? If all goes well, I should have the shawl to reveal in a few days. But at that point ... only Patrons will get to see it in real time! The reveal will be done in a Patron-only post, and it will make the shawl available for a Patron to purchase (if they want) at least 24 hours before it's announced to the general public.

If you're reading this and you'd like to see more (and you're not a Patron), please consider signing on to support my page. Everything helps, even a pledge of $3, $5, $10 …. or more. You'll get rewards, too — it’s an exchange! Please check it out, and btw I also appreciate your shares on social media ♥

Patreon Round 2 - blue/purple jewelry reveal coming soon!

Cross-posted from my Patreon page blog... 

I've been up to my elbows in blue and purple beads! Over the past several days I've made close to a dozen jewelry pieces in my Round 2 colors. This has given me plenty of time to ponder the qualities of these colors - and my Patrons can read all about it in this post which I just shared with them. 
Now, about those jewelry items: Several pieces sold before I could get them listed in my Zibbet shop, which is not a bad thing :) But don't worry, I have more in the making and listing, including a uniquely designed set of four bracelets that can joined together and worn as a long and beautiful necklace. This means a reveal is coming soon, so please stay tuned!
PS: If you become a Patron at $3 or more per month, you can read that Patrons-only post and all the others, too! Please consider becoming a Patron, to support the arts and help me spread more colorful healing in the world!

My theory of color healing and why it works (in a nutshell)

Cross-posted from my Patreon page blog... 

Soon after I shared my previous Patreon post out there on the social media, I received this comment:
Wow, you aren't kidding about healing with color. I just looked at the picture, and I instantly felt a sense of relief! 
This astute reader gets it: The colors in the referenced photo (see link) are predominantly blues, purples, and some greens. These hues are all on the "cool" side of spectrum, which is known to be calming and soothing - especially in the quiet shades that I picked for the photo.

Which brings us to the question of how it works, and why - why would someone looking at a picture dominated by blues and purples experience such a quick and positive shift in mood? Now, whole books have been written on this topic, but I'm going to try to pare it down to the essentials. As I've always said (to myself, anyway) ~

It's all about vibration

Everything vibrates, because everything is made of energy. Einstein famously said, "matter exists where energy is condensed." Okay, that may not be an exact quote, but you get the idea - and the concept provides a lot of food for thought, at least on Internet physics forums :)
For our purposes, though, we can go ahead and assume that we - our bodies, including mind and spirit - vibrate. So does everything around us, including the colors we surround ourselves with. And vibrations align with what's near them - it's called resonance. It was noted over 350 years ago that movements of clock pendulums, hanging near each other on the same wall, will eventually come into alignment - or, resonance. That little observation has intrigued scientists ever since, and we're finally getting some answers on it!

Now, because we resonate with our surroundings, we can consciously bring into our field certain vibrations that evoke qualities we want. Just like the pendulum clocks - well, ok, that's an over-simplification but it still works as a metaphor - we will begin to resonate with the healing vibration we've evoked. That, in a nutshell, is the basis of all vibrational healing, and it works with qualities as varied as sound, minerals, Chinese or Ayurvedic elements, herbs, flower essences, and ... color.

Color is a vibration

Even in the world of physics, color vibrates - it has a wavelength and everything. As an element of vibrational healing, color offers qualities that soothe, energize, regenerate, and more. Color healing also delves into associations with other levels of our energy fields, ie. elements in Chinese medicine or depths in Jin Shin Jyutsu. And, it's easy to surround yourself with a chosen color: You can wear it, put it on your wall,or  even set it in your computer's screen saver!

That, my friends, is a very brief look at how and why healing with color works! The next question is, why do I choose the colors I do for the qualities I want to evoke - such as Round 2's blue and purple for Protection and Wisdom. Well, that's a question for a future post - which will be visible to Patrons only. If you're reading this and you're not a Patron - yet- why not make a pledge so you can follow along with us on the journey!
