Several years ago I saw a T-Shirt in a gift shop with words “Feathers are Love Letters from Angels”. Not having money or credit card with me the T-shirt was left in the shop with me lamenting not being able to buy it. However, the words have stayed with me.
My original intention for this painting was not about angelic love letters. In fact I just wanted to move pigment around on primed watercolor paper. From multi colored abstract forms, curvilinear lines and soft brush strokes, feathers appeared. Only after completing the painting did I realize it was all about Feathers. After the T-shirt incident, calling the painting Love Letters from Angels seemed inevitable.
This painting is a reminder of unseen Entities that we might call Angels. How fortunate are we who believe these Entities guide us on our life’s journey. In fact how fortunate are we who know that we are in relationship with these Beings of Light and can rely upon them. This painting may not have power in itself but when I named it “Love Letters from Angels” it seemed to evoke a mystical Presence of Divine Intelligence. Doing a painting like this awakens one to something greater than oneself. We break through established beliefs challenge them, taking them beyond logic, reason and the five senses as being the only reality. Love Letters from Angels is a talisman connecting me so that whenever I see a feather, I am reminded of the Presence of Angels
Like painting, writing is equally engaging. Using both to express myself I decided to create this blog. The combination of writing and painting is a type of junction in my creative ventures. These junctions with their rules or lack of them are discoveries that happen in my work as a result. Rules can be necessary guidelines but there are also places where I have followed my inner self to see what will happen. This blog is about sharing my discoveries.
