This is the Moon & Stars painting in progress, to date -
I’m enjoying working on this painting in progress.
The acrylic/collage/metallic oil paint combo is allowing me to try new things.
The cat will be either developed further, or changed dramatically.
I haven’t decided which, at the moment.
If I change the cat completely, it will mean doing the same for the background surrounding it.
The metallic oil paint isn’t visible in these photos -
I’ve added it to her crown, as well as the moon and star in her hands.
I’ll make a point of adding an oblique photo in the next update – allowing the metallic to be seen.
This week, for Wishcasting Wednesday, Jamie Ridler asks:
What do you wish for the world?
Many noble answers sprang to mind when I first read Jamie’s question.
While some of these answers ‘sounded good’. none of them felt personal to me.
I continued to contemplate how I’d answer this question.
While working in my studio I realised the answer is staring at me in my current collection of in progress paintings.
The current theme in my work is togetherness.
I am depicting ‘togetherness’ in my work as symbolised by a man & woman.
As always there are multiple layers of interpretation to be found in each painting.
I wish for the world to find ‘togetherness’
There are multiple levels of togetherness we can all aim for.
Most obviously is accepting each other, and working in harmony.
Harmony with your partner, family, neighbour, or on a global scale across continents and nationalities.
For me, ‘togetherness’ within yourself is where this all begins.
Perhaps that’s a strange concept.
I view it as more important, as personal ‘togetherness’ will ripple out like a wave to create every other level of ‘togetherness’.
Personal togetherness means harmony within the self.
Self acceptance will be created when with self knowledge.
Blockages are understood, removed and dreams are achieved – creating.
Togetherness in the Self is a working together of the subconscious & higher consciousness, where dreams are achieved.
Each person that achieves this, through insight, self-discovery, whatever method, takes us one step closer to global togetherness.
For this week’s question on Wishcasting Wednesday, Jamie Ridler asks us:
What do you wish to attract?
The obvious answer (and I’m sure so many others wish for the same) seemed to be success.
Success is such a vague concept.
The more I thought about filling my post with the specific successes I’d like to attact, the more my energy went into a nose dive. I realised I don’t want to share the specifics of my dreams for success, yet.
Ok, what do I want to attract and share here today?
I have so many projects and ideas I want to accomplish, yet I find myself caught up in, and distracted by a re-occurring drama, worries, art ideas, website ideas, etc.. HaHaHa.. everything distracts me at the moment.
I would like to tune into and attract the energy of focus into my life right now.
I will use this focus to work my way through my list of goals and dreams, and bring them into life.
