I like these together. I think they'd look neat together, with the first one as the main point.

That 3rd one is actually kinda scary!!! http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/04-Jun-2003/14141-Hiding.gif

I'm not sure about the edges and the red on that 3rd one... I'm gonna think about it some and come back to see it again when I dare!!!

I'm back already, so it must not be too scary ;)

I was wondering if you could tell us more about the 3rd one, like you did with the 1st two. What were you experiencing during the meditation and how did it result in this painting? What does it mean to you? Stuff like that...

The 2nd piece really speaks to me. Very tranquil and calming. Exquisite in simplicity,elegant in detail. I have just the wall for it.

Ummmmmmmm, where to start really...

well, the third one looks a little different now it's dry LMAO...

I am so impatient..

I'll add a picture later.

This meditation was, to start about cleansing. I needed to raise specific energy for a specific purpose.
To do that, firstly I needed to be totally cleansed so that my purpose was not interfered with by anything else.

The first 2 were a part of the cleansing stage.

The third was a part of the energy raising.

It was strange. The third one, the image started so far away from me, so faint, but I knew it was what I needed, so I worked to pull it towards me.
Eventually it was full in my face and moved to my brow, concentrated there. Thet seems to be my inlet/outlet point.

Each of the 3 has turned out to be exacelt as I saw them.

I painted them to be as I saw them without thought for being pleasing to the eye or, pleasane in their apparance. It is just what I experienced.

It has been a great experience to paint these, and I have really acknowledged to myself that, for me personally, my greatest inspiration comes from meditation and energy raising.

I just have to have the courage to paint what I see/saw and blow the fact that it might look like a pile of pants:D

Thanks for sharing all that Kali :angel:

On my monitor, the dry version of #3 looks more orange than the first time you posted it. Is that accurate?

And I agree -- you gotta let out what needs to be painted, and the results will take care of themselves. That's why I try to practice and sketch and so on. I get frustsrated when my lack of technical skill gets in the way of something that needs or wants to be expressed. I've got a painting that has been sitting around for over 2.5 years because I haven't yet developed the skill to paint the water portion of it. http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/05-Jun-2003/14141-Sigh.gif

But I'm babbling again now. ( That's been a problem for me today :) )

Keep painting these meditations... and I hope you'll continue to post them. They are wonderful.

I think the colours look so different because i scanned the last set rather than taking a flash picture with the digital camera.

I need a bigger scanner lol... then i can fit my piccies on.

The piece was also wet on the first set, giving out glare.

I don;t think the colurs themselves changed, more the style of me showing you them.

The scanner is far more true to life. It looks all blotchy on the digital picture.

I do hope to do more of this work, yes.

I could rattle on for ages about this, but I TRULY believe that anybody could see images like these when they meditate, it's just that it would scare the pants off most people!!!!!!!!!

I think the images are there for people, they just push them away, as it's not (generally in society I hasten to add)... acceptable or, 'normal'... yak yak, one of my most hated words

Anyways, will shut up and get off my soap box for a bit.:D

Erm, have just read through my last posts.... apologies for all of the spelling mistakes...

Have major palpitations at the mo, and should learn to employ the spell check button lol.

more scanner details...


The green on this is a pile o' pants though. It is much 'richer' in life, more sea-like. I think it's because it was painted on a metallic back ground... it just reflects all funny


much better detail and far less glare than with digi camera

I really love the green though Kali. That is just an incredible painting, any way you look at it.

Thanks for both details. They are very cool.
