Years ago, I rented an apartment in a small town in Nova Scotia. The building was owned by two brothers who agreed to renovate a studio for me while I lived there. Because I am an artist they enjoyed my creativity and appreciated my suggestions. The above painting is done on a piece of gyprock they used when applying the ‘mud’ to the walls. When they finished their work for the day this is what appeared: I clearly saw someone in a meditative position and Beings manifesting seemingly unbeknownst to the Meditator. I was fascinated!
Very little had to be changed; the edges of the gyprock needed to be cut slightly and some sanding. Then the pigment was added to bring forth the details but that was all that was necessary.
Whether we know it or not we are surrounded by unseen Beings. Science is proving that space is not empty but teeming with Energy. This Energy may be invisible yet it is always interacting with us. There are forces that hear us and respond to us. They use our five senses, our intuition and telepathy to communicate. They delight in our meditations, our prayers, our gratitude especially when we show compassion for all of creation.
In an attempt to manifest these unseen Energies, historically as well as presently, architecture, paintings, sculpture, writings have expressed this deep knowing that Something More exists. The leap between classical physics and quantum physics has changed the way we look at our world. We are called to question more and accept less of what we have been taught. Imagination, dreams, out of body and near death experiences are at last credible.
Along with the Ancients and those who are making new strides into the Unseen, the existence of Beings is real and even recognizable. Life came to this piece of gyprock with the appearance of The Meditator. When I meditate, I just may be ‘entertaining angels unaware’ who knows? Finding this jewel among junk is telling me so. I certainly has taught me to see.
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.
