"THE STORIES" SERIES---#6 "12TH PETAL"



The original of this painting was gouache on paper---I had it for a long time and I didn't think I would ever sell it, but it did sell (to another artist) and unfortunately, I don't have a record of where it went. (I'm not sure how I lost track of it, but if you own it, please email me & let me know)


It was one that documented a glimpse into the metaphysical world, and as often happens, it occurred around a very stressful time for me. The image is a rendition of a "vision" that was seen and reported to a close friend of mine as she was having a reading done of her own situation by a man who was a friend of hers & happened to be a dowser. I was seen as residing on her 12th Petal--a reference to how relationships with other people could be examined. I was in the "darkness" (because of the stress and grief I was experiencing at the time), but was slowly coming into the light. My friend's description of her session with the dowser, and what he said was so compelling to me that it immediately created a visual image in my mind--which is what became this painting.

I love how she emerges from the leaves! Another beautiful painting. Thanks for sharing her and the story that goes along with her. I loved it and feel much that way myself - emerging.

Hi Christine!
What a lovely concept and the colors are beautiful!

christine, I have given you an award, if you like that sort of thing-no strings attached! I think you have an inspiring blog.

no worries if you prefer not to participate. I am not sure I will again, to be honest. I changed the "rules" of nominating other blogs to one of choice.

Zooms,
Glad you are enjoying them. It is good for me to write this stuff down--I am thinking of using this info I am gathering later on, either in a book or maybe on cards. Not sure yet, but am just in the gathering stage at this point.
