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!!
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!
