Onward Chakras -30x40x1.5 mixed media & oils on canvas
Onward -Chakra Healing
With this mixed media piece that I may name Onward – I call you the viewer to imagine what it would be like if there were no memories in your mind and no thoughts into your future. I call you to be right here, right now. Present.
Now think of all the good that you do.
Here is a choice – do you let your light burn strong and bright or do you let it burn out in a world that tries to silence your light?
Can you deny the need for a light like yours?
I do a lot of contemplating on my yoga mat AND in front of my canvas. It’s quite transformative what can happen.
The painting is me thinking. There are no words, and there is no subject matter other than the chakras in place for healing.
I decided to work this painting into a piece that I had previously created called Root To Rise…
It’s essential to have this piece underneath transform into the painting that you see here.
Root to Rise told the story of the space where the land meets the water … The space in between. That divide reminded me of the one we can see in the world; the space we need healing the most.
The chakras you see here are part of that. They are showing the healing that is taking place.
I broke out my oil paints and linseed oil for creative journey … that in itself is a visceral experience, especially when I paint with my hands. The smell and feel of oil paint are luxurious.
The work I wanted to do on this canvas needed this type of tactile application, and I applied it in a meditative and healing way, like massage oils.
My intention was to answer a call, to check in to what my mission is and what my message is as an artist. To thrive. To shine. To heal. To expand.
