Intentional Camera Movement
During this past 15 months, and lock downs and quiet time, some of my creativity I felt was not there, yet I truly did enjoy the quiet and slowing down for a bit.
I thought I would expand my creative juices in other areas since I also could not do Encaustic.
I tried painting, art journalling, mixed media, drawing and well, I learned quickly they were just not me.
I still do a form of art journalling, but my own of connecting with emotions, thoughts, frustrations etc and it’s interesting what does come out.
Since moving into a new space with a huge lush garden and yard, things have shifted yet again. I noticed all the trees and what they shared but I overlooked the flowers, at first, anyways.
Not that I didn’t notice them, but not like I do now. I was part of a 5 day ICM workshop last week and every morning I went out into the garden and played with my camera and really saw the flowers at a much deeper level.
I love nature, the quiet, the beauty, the calmness, the abundance, the non-judgment and I got curious and playful. One of the great aspects of nature but also ICM.
You could put 5 Photographers in front of a flower and you would get similar images, but add in ICM and everything is different, unique and I find rather beautiful.
It can take one beyond the linear, beyond seeing the same old.
I love being able to paint with my camera (and of course torch but more on that later), as some of us just can’t create beautiful art with a paint brush. No judgment, it’s just where our gifts lie.
Since stepping back into ICM, my creativity is opening up more but also my playfulness and curiousity. I do feel like I am creating paintings with my camera, Impressionistic style, formless and different. All are done in camera, with minimal tweaking in LR.
Great way to turn my attention away from the so called ‘real’ world and what is happening there.
How do you get creative, playful or curious?
Photo store is here, but if any are of interest please contact me directly for more information.
It’s very interesting how we get programmed!!
A day called Valentines Day to celebrate love for one another – to buy cards (thanks Hallmark), chocolates, roses, dinners out.
But, is that really true love?
Why only one day?
Why a ‘special’ day?
Love should be celebrated every day freely with NO commercial ‘value’ attachment.
Unconditional Love that is!
I’ve started working in Encaustic – which is a cool medium and yes hearts and Love is my theme right now.
To remind myself, yet others that this world needs more unconditional, right from the heart Love more than ever.
I’ve played around with little pieces, yet I wanted to share 2 pieces that will be in this upcoming show.
Please stop back soon to check out more Encaustic Art I will have on my site.
Go spread some Love today by opening your heart.
It’s hard to see all the texture on the web and in photos of Encaustic yet mush is there!
WE, as HUman BEings are all droplets of water and the ocean is the Infinite Awareness (Creator, Source, IA etc)
When the droplet connects with the ocean where does the droplet end and the ocean start?
It’s called Oneness and Infinite Love.
We ARE all connected.
It’s time to remember the truth of who we BE!
PS – if that has you curious, then you will love A Story of Our Souls
What I love about Impressionistic Photography is it takes one beyond the linear, into possibility and expansion beyond the ordinary.
Which is what Energy is ALL about.
The world needs a greater level of consciousness, which is awareness, creativity, uniqueness (not conformity), beauty & love.
Can you imagine that??
PS – Not sure what I mean by that? Check out my book – A Story of Our Souls – be prepared though, it may stretch your mind past the perceived ‘normal’!!!
Also, all Fine Art Photos are available for sale, limited editions.
If Everything IS Energy, and Energy is constantly moving, maybe there is more than meets the eye between the seen and unseen……….
Food for Thought!
What is Soul Art?
We are seeing the word Soul used more and more these days, yet do we really connect with the meaning of it?
Soul – the essence of a living BEing. It is consciousness at a higher form that is part of Source (Creator, God, The Field etc)
Why is it so important?
It’s the truth of who we are. We are unique vibrational frequencies that come down to Planet Earth to have an experience. To do that, we put on a body suit (aka costume) walked through the veil of amnesia into the illusion of separation and are trying to make sense now of life.
What is meant by truth?
I share it like this, we put on this body suit aka costume and came to planet Earth, or as a metaphor – we went to this costume party, where there are a ton of others in costumes, great buffet of foods and different things to do while at this party, yet while at this party, we drank the koolaid and forgot that it is just a party (aka we can create Heaven on Earth) and we really became the costume. Another analogy is the movies, it’s a movie being projected out from our consciousness then reflected back to us, yet we are so heavily involved in the movie that we have become the character we are playing totally forgetting it’s just a movie.
We are Souls having Human experiences, yet we have forgotten and in forgetting we have closed down our hearts.
That is the access to the Soul and re-connecting.
We are never totally disconnected, but we can reduce the connection greatly.
How do we increase that connection.
Forgiveness to everyone and everything
Focus on what brings you Joy and do more of that and keep expanding it.
Become the observer of your reality – in other words, don’t get caught up in the dramas and traumas, gossiping etc – it’s all part of the movie / the party.
Not always easy, but ever so worth it as you will find as you keep growing that connection.
Besides, we need more Love in the world, it has way too much fear, red, control and manipulation.
Open your heart and connect with your Soul.
Soul Art for me is in doing art (and I’m only getting started), writing my book, spending time in nature or the beach, going to markets, having deep conversations about life, love, the cosmos and consciousness, creating tasty dishes in the kitchen, going to markets and being fully present in the moment.
These are my ways of Soul Art – as we can incorporate them in many different ways in our living.
How about you – what brings you Joy that you could be doing more of.
Create a Soul Art day!

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Imagination IS the language of the Soul.
Pay attention to your imagination, and you will discover all you need to be fulfilled.

What we see………
If Everything IS Energy, and it is :), the range of frequencies (vibrations) that we “See” is a fraction of the entire frequency range……….
PS – this is available for sale in my store in limited editions!
