The Messenger 24x30
oil on canvas $1200.
In my painting "The Messenger", we see a female in nature, but lifted just above it, seated in the sky so to speak. To listen, to hear beyond the physical one must be grounded. And yet too grounded is not accurate either. To strike the balance therein. The idea maybe to have ones feet securely planted on the ground while the head is in the sky. In other words to activate the stretch is to be the stretch of consciousness. In our seasoned mature self the opportunity presents itself to draw up knowledge from the past as we see the female in the painting carrying paper scrolls under her arm. In her other hand she has a modern day tool, that of a electronic device, a ipod with headset. Clearly tools of the day. Being able to draw upon that which one has been is powerful especially to use in a positive way in the now. Who is she listening too?
The invisible. The Unseen.
To become a vehicle for Spirit one must listen and be able to hear the Unseen. I wanted to make a painting reflecting what is possible for all of us.
We all have the opportunity to become the messenger in our own right and indeed we are capable of this. By relaxing our minds where thoughts can roam, we learn to listen, to hear, to sense.
I choose a female to represent consciousness as a whole. I chose to paint a landscape environment another form of feminine energy. For when are all embrace the divine feminine, no matter what our gender, we can hear from beyond.
We will know how to ground the message and in that way act as messengers between one another and serve humanity. It is such as gift to clearly see what we are capable of.
I hope my painting stimulates memory within each that view my art that indeed the messenger lives within us all.
