Remember the Lotus

Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.  Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud, it does not allow the dirt that surrounds it to affect its growth or beauty.  Suzy Kassem. The lotus flower is considered a sacred symbol.  The Lotus symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, knowledge and serenity.  The lotus will fluorish in murky waters, pushing through mud and mire.  The petals break through and reach toward the sun, while the leaves stay afloat as they shine in the light.

Symbolically, lotus petals can be found in the chakra symbols.  Each chakra has a specific number of petals, representing ascending vibrational frequencies.  The state of enlightenment is represented by the thousand-petal lotus.

Create Your Happy Place

Let yourself become living poetry.  Rumi.

I have been working on expanding my artistic bag-o-tricks. I love the look of mixed media artworks, and the dimensional feel of it.  The idea of creative expression through the use of non-traditional materials is a good way to learn how to think outside the box.  It’s my happy place!

I recently discovered an all-natural plant based solvent that can be used to “rearrange” the ink print on some magazines and sales fliers.  It’s a good way to recycle, get creative and give those trees a new purpose as inked art papers.

While some of the darker pages were blasé, others were beautifully unique and deliciously abstract tiny artworks.  I set them aside to be reworked as little canvases, and chose some of the pages to be torn to bits and arranged in collage.

ART:  Through the Veil to Mystic Mountain (2019)

I played around with the torn pieces, allowing myself to flow into the ink, until I was satisfied with the layout.  I sponged the edges of the canvas to create a seamless flow of color from inked paper to acrylic paint.  I carefully transferred piece by piece to the canvas, using gesso to temporarily hold the pieces until I could ensure the image would emerge.  My final steps were to permanently affix with adhesive and apply a protective sealer.

What I ended up with was an abstract mystical mountain landscape with beautiful skyline of curtains.  Distant snow-capped mountains and a surprising depth to the rolling hills.  The inked papers have fascinating colors and textures.

✨ Oh!  Did I mention that I threw in some glitter?✨
