oil on canvas, 36x36"


This piece is named Ancient China because Gold or yellow was the color of
Imperial China. Also, as some of you may already know, the tibetan Buddhist
believes that GOLD symbolizes the golden ray of the sun. Gold is intimately linked with Divinity and those 
gods associated with the Sun. It symbolizes wealth and success!

What drives the creative process…?


Every Artist has a creative process that is unique to them. I personally fill in the “creative” tank during my travels overseas for the most part. For me it’s the history, the energy that old stones hold, an old barn wood, an old door, anything that has a story to tell, it’s mysterious … below are just a few pictures and samples of the things that stimulate my creative senses… these were taken in Italy just recently, a castle dated of the twelve century, I just couldn’t resist its historical energy!!

JADE… new addition to Brigitte Balbinot’s new body of work LUMENS


Part of new painting series.. “JADE” oil/cold wax and resin, 30×30″ …
Jade is most valued for its metaphysical properties. It is the ultimate “Dream Stone,” revered in ancient cultures, as well as today, to access the spiritual world, gain insight into ritualistic knowledge, encourage creativity, and dream-solve. It is cherished as a protective talisman, assuring long life and a peaceful death, and is considered a powerful healing stone. An amulet of good luck and friendship, Jade signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility, dispelling the negative and encouraging one to see oneself as they really are.

These paintings are meant to bring some clarity and peace into your environment. Think of it as FENG SHUI DECOR!

Wear Your Intention!


IMG_0492 IMG_0494_2 IMG_0502

From Amethyst to Rainbow Agates …  WEAR YOUR INTENTION!

What do you want to create in your life? What are you working on? What do you want? What are you struggling with. Ask yourself these questions and see if they guide to what you want to create as your intention.

ENERGY

Every crystal I use in my mala beads has its own individual energy. Make sure that this energy aligns with your intention! A lot of malas will assist everyone on some level – see if you can find something that you connect with individually.

INTUITION

What was the first mala you were originally drawn to? – This is most likely the perfect mala for you!

Choosing a mala is a combination of all of these factors – most importantly follow your intuition and follow your heart.

New Small Studies coming …


These are still in their drying stage, which usually takes for ever, and by forever I mean several weeks… This work is part of my new process, working with cold waxes, oils and resins… for more info on my work please email me at info@brigittebalbinot.com…

Along The Path of Enlightenment


As part of my creative process I am now introducing a new collection of Mala necklaces and bracelets. These are made of genuine gemstones helping with healing, meditation, focus and more… Here’s a sneak peek …

These two necklaces feature Amethyst Gemstones.. Here’s a bit more about amethysts and their metaphysical power…

“Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace.

Amethyst is used as beneficial when dealing with legal problems and money issues, which can lead to prosperity and abundance, though it is not the best known prosperity stone.

In the psychic and spiritual realms, amethyst is an excellent all-purpose stone that can increase spirituality and enhance intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It does this by making a clear connection between the earth plane and other planes and worlds. Amethyst is also excellent for meditation and lucid dreaming. It is used to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with angels. Amethyst also protects against psychic attacks, especially during spiritual work.

Amethyst is not only a psychic protection stone, but is also used to protect one from thieves, and to protects travelers. 

Emotionally, amethyst is used in crystal healing  to help heal personal losses and grief, bringing one gently past. Amethyst has a gently sedative energy that can promote peacefulness, happiness, and contentment. It also is said to bring emotional stability and inner strength. 

Amethyst is very well known — as from the ancients — as a sobriety stone. It has been used for millenia to prevent drunkenness, and is used to assist in getting rid of addictions to alcohol, drugs, smoking, etc, and destructive compulsive behaviors of all kinds.”

Introducing LUMENS, A New Body of Work by Brigitte Balbinot


I am so excited to finally be unveiling my latest body of work, LUMENS. I have been working so hard, doing a lot of soul searching to finally find what “resonates” with me as an Artist. This is it! The message is simple, but yet profound … As we are constantly bombarded with information, the simplicity of the work encourages peace and clarity of thought. My aim for depth and textures symbolize a deep emotional response to the universal and the primal, leading the viewer into a state of contemplation and possible reflection. Objects such as parchment, stones, marble anything that holds energy feeds my inspiration. In this new body of work, I allow the mind the take pause so the painting can become a conduit to an alternate universe.
