Hands with Energy - Heating the Heart
Hands with Energy, Paint and Ink on Paper, 32 x 20 in., 2007
This is a piece I painted just after the previous Aura of a Burning Heart. It kind of came to me as a vision of these hands that would be "healing" the viewer. But then I began to think that the viewer could be the one doing the healing, so I decided to paint the back of the hands as if they could be the viewer's.
The heart found it's way into the work in an interesting way. After I painted the hands, I noticed the space between the hands looked a bit like a rib cage, and so suggested a place where the heart sits.
The energy coming from the hands is energizing the heart and setting it aflame. It could be understood like reiki energy which after a simple attunement anyone can perform. And fortunately, viewing art requires no attunement at all.. Thanks for looking!
