A Radiating Heart



Radiating Heart, Paint on Plexiglas, 8 x 5 inches, 2007
_______________________________________

This is a piece painted directly on plexiglas, so there are a few areas you can see through.

It came out of me quickly. I was working on another large painting and I suddenly had this idea to do a heart that radiates energy. I was struggling to decide what size to make this painting because I knew it was a good idea. I felt like I wanted to make it quickly (and I had only a couple of sizes of plexiglas) so I opted for a pretty small piece. It painted itself with a flurry of creative energy. I just stepped back and let it happen.

Hmmm. I like the progression of the last few pieces you've included here in the blog. Interesting sequences. I doubt it was planned, but scroll through and see it. Very interesting work and choices of media. Steve, is there anything you *won't* paint on?! LOL! That is one of the things I like about your work, so much variety. Keep it coming!

So beautiful. And even more beautiful to see your work in person! Ah but I'm one of the lucky bloggers to have received a personal tour of the studio. I hope to get some video footage of your work posted... I can't say soon... let's just say, sometime this year ;-)

Beautiful Steve! It also looks like a sunflower to me!

Lyn,
Thanks for noticing this arrangement of works. They are quite ecclectic. I suppose I am the type of artist who adapts the art to the inspiration. So the materials and images can change. That makes it fun for me, but sometimes challenging to the "art world" which apparently seeks continuity. At least that's what I learned from many instructors. Oh well, I just do what I do.
Thanks again.

Eileen,
Thank you for checking out my work, glad you enjoy, and for the video footage update. I had fun presenting in front of the camera. :^D

Dan,
Thanks for the compliment! Glad to hear your experience, that's one of the things I like about making art is hearing how people experience the art. See you later.

hey steve,
im going over your paintings again.
and i love this one. i had the same sort of view earlier today.
funny how it comes up here again.
the little steps of synchronicity are playing.

but id like also to add that a teacher who is reading "the divine matrix" showed me this picture of the energy body and the 'torodoil' energy field which i had never heard of before. you may have.
but if you havent then it's the biggest field in the body. it spins us mostly. it's up at the heart. and now we're getting realigned.
thanks for contributing!
beautiful art
