Want to Trade?
It’s been a busy week in the studio and I’ve been feeling in the flow for sure. I’m going out of town for a couple of weeks and will miss painting. But it will be that much more fun when I return with a new perspective, no pun intended.
So, I recently had a friend contact me whom I haven’t seen in person in 30 years. She asked if I would be into a trade for a painting. I LOVE trades! Something inside me stirs. It reminds me of something lost. An old part of us, when trading was the norm. Like when you had the chickens, and I grew the veggies. And our oldest children walked a mile to exchange eggs and corn every week. I imagine trading like that, and it fills my heart up somehow. In that reciprocity is a knowing still buried in our DNA.
Well, my beautiful friend Jennifer wanted to trade a painting for psychic reading. Wow, how about that. It’s not every day that you get such an interesting proposition! And of course, I said yes.
The reading was marvelous. So heart filled, rich, personal, and insightful. I am so honored she called.
More about Jennifer and her special work can be found on her website: skyfarmcare.com.
After the session, I had some realizations (of which Jennifer said would be likely) about an idea I’ve pondered for a few years now. And, if I write about it here in this blog . . . I hope it will help make the idea manifest!
First of all, I’ve had some deep visions over time related to numbers and colors. I know, sounds very metaphysical….and it is! For those who have studied astrology, numerology, or even the chakras, you get it.
As an artist, I've always had a very deep connection to color. Carl Jung said, “Colors are the mother tongue of the subconscious.”
I love that.
So, I'm working on a new kind of portrait based on a person’s birth date. In a way, they are your soul colors. Like your astrological signs, each of us have unique numbers derived from the date of birth. And all those numbers have corresponding colors.
For me, cycles, patterns, and forces in nature can have a profound effect. From an energizing sensation when the moon is full, to seasonal blues. And because say Neptune, is so far away, shouldn’t mean that its force is not in effect on some subtle level. Quantum entanglement anyone?
Whether generated by our own thoughts, emotions, or the collective unconscious... There are forces and energies known and unknown at play all around us.
Naysayers claim no scientific evidence of planetary influence on human behavior. Yet here we are, still studying numerology after Pythagoras invented it. Thousands of years later. I look at it as a beautiful way to raise self awareness and create a more meaningful world.
“The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.”
~ Marcus Aurelius
In these challenging times we need more peace, joy, and meaning to counter all the madness.
These soul color charts (portraits) are a way to see your uniqueness in vivid color. They're meant to be a peek into the colorful energies that surround you. They are meant to arouse in-sight!
I’ve had several friend’s tell me how much they actually love the colors that present in their life color reading. As if no other colors would have been right!
If you're interested in your soul color chart... send me an email and I’ll give you more information.
