Random Art Post and Chakras

I was going to do a post on Chakras this week, but Spirit Science beat me to it and did a damn good job!  So instead, I’m going to share what Jordan wrote on the subject.  Click the link to check it out. 😀

As an added bonus, I’ve decided to share my series of Chakra paintings too.  I found that painting each Chakra was a fun and creative way to meditate on them and gain new insight and perspective on my own energy and things I can heal.

I highly recommend everyone try it out for themselves, it’s a lot of fun, and when you’re done, BOOM, you have a painting series to hang on the wall.

Some of the symbols in the paintings are easier to see than others, I used a metallic-gold acrylic paint, so they catch the light differently.  The other painting in this picture is one of my own as well, it’s a peacock under a lilac bush.

Just for fun. Wizard Gear.

I was organizing my gallery and remembered a few fun things I had forgotten about, and thought I’d share.  Wizard Gear.  Looking at these pictures reminds me of what a blast I had making these and I think I’d like to do some more of that.

This first image is of a Valkyrie headband I made for Halloween a couple of years ago.  To make it, I used a hot glue gun, tin foil, a couple of wire coat-hangers, some shiny baubles from the art store, sequins, feathers, and silver spray paint.  I shaped a frame for the wings and the headband, then covered them with a skin of tin foil. Over this I glued the sequins and feathers.  It’s best to get all of that situated and in place, spray paint it, and then add the gems and shiny stuff at the very end, so you don’t get over-spray on your sparkles.

Next is my Wizard Staff, it’s wrapped with silver wire, carved with Reiki Symbols, the run “sol” and the symbol psi.   It also includes an Amethyst crystal, and feathers.

Finally there’s the neat wand/scepter thing I made, this utilizes copper wrapping, quartz crystals and a leaf trinket.

I had such a blast making these, I can’t wait to create more magical wizard gear in the future.  Perhaps I’ll add potions to the mix?   Who knows.

What we choose to create

You know, the other day I was working on my art page on facebook, uploading a bunch of pictures recent and old, and I realized something. I have a lot of dark stuff, and I’m not so into it anymore. I look at those old pictures, I don’t get a happy emotional response. I’m reminded of angst filled teenage years and dark times and bullshit. lol.

I get not censoring yourself. I get using art to spread awareness of issues, and using it to let out some emotional angst. I can see it’s use as a way to conquer your demons even.

I’m just thinking I’d prefer to start conquering my demons by creating more angels. The world has enough negativity in it, we all get the world has negativity, what I think we need to be reminded of is the positive potential present.
