11x 14 Tree Life was constructed on gallery wrapped canvas with a self-created 3-dimensional style medium that creates luxurious depth and contour. I am in love with this style of painting as it is completely intuitive in nature. I have no idea what will result when I begin one of these pieces. What is meant to be, is revealed in the creation. Frequently heard is the statement, "I feel so much better (calmer/more centered/more aligned/more inspired) when I look at your artwork." This is not by chance! Even though my process is quite fluid, my intention is completely focused. My intention is to create works of art that inspire a spiritual connection. I center myself before starting each day in the studio. I meditate, clear my room of negative energies, play inspiring music, clear each and every component used to create my artwork and infuse them all with Reiki energy. There are crystals and/or crystal dust embedded in many of my pieces. My works of art, truly are energetically alive and charged, which is why they envoke such magnificent emotions.
This particular piece was inspired by a walk in the woods with all the colors and textures to be found both within living trees and bushes and decaying pieces that now serve a different purpose in the grand ecological cycle.
