My Hillside

My Hillside

I call this “My Hillside” because when I think of something in between a meadow and a mountain, I think of hills.  

For me this is kind of my stage between resting in a beautiful flowered meadow and very tall mountain I have to climb. I feel as if I am in the in between status of resting and going for the big goal. I am not quite resting but am acclimating to increasing my energies and heading up the trek of another mountain. 

There is rich earth from the tones of brown hues and beautiful luscious green for grass and crops to grow. Even though the blue could be water, it is beginnings and growth of a developing mountain. 

This was once a drawing I drew with coloured pens and I expanded upon it in the computer. I have added a beautiful sunrise because it is the dawning of a new day or a new chapter in my book of life. After having met my goal of posting one image a day for every day of last year, I have taken a little break and am now ready to proceed with new ambitions.

The Eye

The Eye

This is originally an abstract pen drawing which flowed and came out of me easily which I the manipulated digitally. It represents an eye. From left to right, it is the side view of an eye with the cornea, iris and lens. It has the sclera too. 

I remember doing a project as a youngster on anatomical parts of the eye. I remember distinctly drawing out the features of the eye with its component parts. I have put light coming through the front of the eye and back through to be processed by the brain in a multitude of colours. There is wisdom and knowledge there with a bright understanding of the processed information, just like we all do. 

The eye represents vision but it is also representing the sixth sense of being able to see beyond what we see physically. 

According to Oprah’s website, “Clairvoyance means clear seeing. This is when visions past, present and future flash through our mind’s eye, or third eye, much like a daydream. Many of us are highly visual and able to understand an idea best when we see it written or sketched out as an image on a computer screen or on a canvas. Visual people often choose to be artists, builders, photographers, decorators, designers and so forth. If this sounds familiar, your clairvoyance is most likely a dominant sense.”

Earth Vapours

Earth Vapours

I drew an abstract Earth or planet. This is my interpretation of how the vapours come off of the Earth’s atmosphere into the upper stratosphere. The gases are released through all parts of our rock. It is particularly noticeable from the north and south poles. 

I am not making any commentary about climate change although we should be concerned about nature, animals, plants and the environment as inhabitants of this Earth. Normally, there is an exchange of gases throughout the layers emanating outwards towards the Universe. In the same way that people breathe in oxygen and expel carbon dioxide there is a symbiotic relationship with nature.

Magical Swan

Magical Swan

This is a drawing I created with India Ink, with old-fashioned ink wells and nib pens that flow onto the surface of the drawing pad. I scanned it and created more colour.  

I have emphasized the colour purple and according to ColorMatters website, “Taking all aspects of purple’s past and present into consideration, purple symbolizes magic, mystery, spirituality, the sub-conscious, creativity, dignity, royalty – and it evokes all of these meanings more so than any other color.”

Ancient Tree

Ancient Tree – Drawing & Digital Art by Mary Mikawoz

Ancient Tree

The original base of this abstract drawing is coloured pencils. I was listening to a guided visualization by Colette Baron-Reid. I had visions of an ancient tree with a textured being and also a very rich, red root system. I have added more colour to the background.

Chakras Being Unblocked

Chakras Being Unblocked

Click link to see entire creation.

This is my interpretation of when your chakra system is blocked – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet. There is hope as I see the healing sun beaming from the upper left healing down a rainbow of energy and light to cleanse the energy centres of negativity and energy blockages. This is originally an abstract artwork with acrylic paints.

According to chakras.info website the following is very interesting:

“Each of the chakras in the body is paired with an endocrine gland and governs its function.

Root chakra (1st) — Reproductive glands (testes in men; ovaries in women); controls sexual development and secretes sex hormones.

Sacral chakra (2nd) — Adrenal glands; regulates the immune system and metabolism.

Solar Plexus chakra (3rd) — Pancreas; regulates metabolism.

Heart chakra (4th) — Thymus gland; regulates the immune system.

Throat chakra (5th) — Thyroid gland; regulates body temperature and metabolism.

Third Eye chakra (6th) — Pituitary gland; produces hormones and governs the function of the previous five glands; sometimes, the pineal gland is linked to the third eye chakra as well as to the crown chakra.

Crown chakra (7th) — Pineal gland; regulates biological cycles, including sleep.”

Water Lilies in Colour

Water Lilies in Colour

I took the photograph of the water lilies in Freeport, Bahamas. I then decided to give it some colour and give it some darker features using filters and effects. The result is like a painting which I hope you like as much as I do.

I really like the photograph and added a stained glass effect to it. It is not an ordinary flower but a special one found at Hotel Beatus in Cambrai, France where I found it outside the rooms in the adjoining patios. Philippe Gorczynski found and made a museum around a World War I British tank, Deborah, the Iron Lady, near Flesquieres.

Golden Fields

Mikawoz Golden Fields

Golden Fields

I took this photograph in the fields around the Interlake area of Manitoba. I really enjoy the pattern of the bales of hay on the prairies with its golden tone. I took this image and put a variety of filters on it to make it look more like a painting effect with fibers.

Heart Beat

Mikawoz Heart Beat

Heart Beat

This is a drawing and digital artwork of a Heart Beat. It is becoming 3D with the effects of a pulse and blood coursing through the arteries of this abstract heart. It is living and enjoying life as it automatically beats throughout the day of our lives. There is vibrancy and soul within its orbit like a heart beat is to a musical set of notes.
