Oozing Pain

Oozing Pain

This photograph is for those people who have suffered abuse, neglect or trauma. It is for all those who have been in personal pain for their problems and issues. It is a close-up picture I took of a cactus. I have added an effect so that the cuts in the cactus represents the blood cuts of the body or soul which is oozing pain. 

The only way the person can protect him/herself is by growing sharp needles or jagged spikes. That is the way some people deal with emotional, physical, sexual, mental or spiritual trauma. I wish everyone the ability to deal with their problems and issues as best they can when appropriate and when capable and able to do so. This is my desire, wish and prayer for all of us growing to the next level. If we ask for help from the Angels, Archangels and God or whatever you consider your Higher Power, we can find help.

Duo Bins

Duo Bins

I took this photograph in the Interlake area of Manitoba. There are two grain bins with the fields behind them. I like the black and white effect of the steel grain bins. At this time of year, they are full and waiting for the right time to go to market and then travel around the world to feed people.  

According to Sciencing website, “In most silos, gravity causes grain to flow from the top of the silo and out through an opening at the bottom near the center. At that opening, a machine called an auger transports the grain to a vehicle or another grain storage facility. As grain flows through the auger, it forms a funnel shape at the top of the silo.”

Biophotons

Biophotons

Can you see the original photograph? It is a picture I captured of flowers, plants and leaves. They are beautiful and incredibly gorgeously – alive in nature. I have created an effect so that if it is the life force oozing from the edges of the plants and flowers. 

Everything emanates with a light that is inherent in all beings and living things. In 1923, Alexander Gurwitsch, a Russian scientist, discovered what would be researched further by his daughter, Anna, and would come to be known as biophotons. 

The biophotons are created by all living organisms. According to the NewburyPortNews.com website, “The interesting thing about light is that in addition to behaving like a wave of energy, it can also behave like a physical particle, a kind of chunk of light, a quantum. It’s this basic unit of light that we call a photon. 

Biophotons are photons, bits of light, that are generated spontaneously by most living cells. Research suggests that biophotons are created in the DNA that resides in the mitochondria in your cells. They are created in the 98% of each DNA molecule that is not used for genetic coding of behavior. The genome project referred to this as junk-DNA because they had no idea about its use.”

White as Snow

White as Snow

This parrot is standing stoically on a branch amidst the greenery. He is “white as snow.” He seems to be happy and content. I like the way he is so elegant and has such beautiful plumage. 

The photograph was taken at Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver, British Columbia. According to the Vancouver Parks and Recreation website, “More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”

The Real Kiss

The Real Kiss

This is an abstract painting of “The Real Kiss.” It is an acrylic painting I was inspired to create. Originally, it was simply a stream of connecting lines in brown that is all about seeing from the negative space and seeing around what is actually there. I have put in the white and black space to indicate that there are two people kissing. In between their mouths, is a cherry of the luscious love they share like the fruit of Adam and Eve.  

I enjoyed creating the painting and then enhancing it digitally.  

If you look at it longer, you can even see a third face, maybe even four. You can’t tell if they are female or male or transgender or non-binary but in many ways, it does not matter. It is all about love anyways. I find it mesmerizing in some ways and quite sensual.

Beauty of My Eye

Beauty of My Eye

When I see peonies, I think of my mother. There is an old coloured photograph of my mother in a pink, silky organza layered type of dress. She looks absolutely stunning and so beautiful. Along with her, were her children, us kids, playing beside her and she is kneeling near the fence where there are beautiful, pink peonies framing her body. 

I love this image that I took in my own garden because it highlights the pink peony and is surrounded by bright, yellow flowers and green leaves which to me, is like my mother along with her children. She is the “Beauty of My Eye.” 

Now that I think of it, I wonder if my father created that stunning dress for my mother as he was a custom tailor and made beautifully tailored clothes for all of us. Good memories. 

This is for you Mom and Dad!

Saboteur

Saboteur

I drew the “Saboteur” based on the teachings of Keith MacPherson in a course called “Making Sense of Mindfulness” – https://www.keithmacpherson.ca 

The Saboteur for me is an entity that prevents me from creating when I want to. It is the fear-based ego-mind that stops me right in my tracks from moving forward with my ideas and inspirations to create. 

It has three heads with its own eyes which, for me, represents the past, present and future. Each time period, has its own way of creating tension in the way of regrets (past), fears (present) and anxieties (future). 

The middle eye in the body is like the evil eye of Sauron from J.R.R. Tolkien’s book “Lord of the Rings.” 

The thing about my Saboteur is that he is kind of whimsical and mystical and can be beaten at his own game as he does not have any arms or hands to fight back with. I can prevail and create. I can write more books, take more beautiful photographs and create images of artwork from India Ink drawings, abstract painting, computer design and digital art.

Dark Farmland

Dark Farmland

I took this photograph because I liked the composition of the farm house, the grain bin and the hay bale. I have created a digital artwork like a painting from it using the colours present in the picture. It is taking the best of black and white while highlighting it with colours as well. 

It seems like there are dark clouds in the background while sunlight still shines on the foreground. I feel there is a beauty despite it being a gloomy and sulky image. Where there is darkness, there is also a glimmer of hope. 

It was taken in the Interlake area of Manitoba.

Eyelets

Eyelets

I drew this drawing while I was feeling in a good mood and was feeling in the flow of life. There is movement and design in the drawing. I felt as if I were drawing material with eyelets in it. I have intentionally put in all the colours of the rainbow and then some. 

I have made the background to be rich in colour and by virtue of the design, having a texture. It is the kind of design that makes you want to look more into what it is all about and I find myself looking at various features and at the vibrancy of the image. I hope you enjoy it too!

Pelicano 

I took the original photograph of the Pelicano and then created an artwork from it. I love the pelicans that I see on Lake Winnipeg and water areas. My husband and I have always affectionately called these birds, Pelicanos, not realizing that that is the Spanish word for them.  

According to the What’s Your Sign website, “Pelicans are symbols of love, sacrifice and motherhood. This has to do with legends about pelicans giving their own blood and life in order to save their offspring. Pelicans remind us how self-sacrifice is often required in order to protect who and what we love.”
