“Unity” – Celestial Portrait Complete!

Happy holidays everyone! The days are getting darker up here in the north and evening candles and slippers are the norm. It has been awhile since I made a painting of my own inspiration/desire/wants, so creating this was really wonderful and healing. The idea has been circling my mind for a few months and it wasn’t meant to be something fancy or groundbreaking… it was really meant to feel uplifting and spiritual.

“Unity” – 16 x 20 inches – oil on linen

 

Ever since January, my spiritual journey has grown and evolved and settled into my artwork. To me it has been more about awareness of who we are, where we come from and what our current reality is attempting to teach us.

In this portrait I wanted to just connect to that energy and the cosmos. I have been painting quite a lot of full body figures lately and I haven’t been able to spend as much time on my favorite part – the face – as I would have liked. This painting was a real pleasure for me to create.

When I look or work on it I get a sense of peace. It takes me away from the day to day and brings me back to a place of togetherness. I do believe we are all connected, we are all cut of the same cloth/light and we are all here to do one thing: experience and grow. We all know that isn’t the easiest task but hey these are lessons we’ll never forget right?
