Reiki Goddess Energy Art Print

Metamorphosis – Duality” by Primal Painter

This is the first in a series of three energy art prints I created this January 2012.   I feel that 2012 is going to be a year for letting go of the old energies of duality and opening up to a more spiritual energy of connectedness.  The pieces of the puzzle are finally starting to fit.

This abstract art Goddess print illustrates the place where we experience our duality….we get glimpses of a higher vibration, we know it’s there, but we’re still immersed in the earthly school of drama and fear.  Actually, I’m starting to think that a big part of duality is the fear…fear of the unknown, fear of the future, fear of change, fear of our own light.

                                                 “Metamorphosis – Introspection”

This reiki attuned energy art print is illustrating the phase of transformation and spiritual growth where we dig deep into ourselves and start to recognize that our earthly issues are of our own creation.  We have a choice in how we act and react.

Metamorphosis – Awakening

This third energy art print in the series represents the stage where we recognize our path and start to consciously create our own reality.  We awaken to the possibilities.

Each print measures 8″ x 10″ and is professionally printed on Kodak Endura Metallic Photo Paper.  I have an 11″ x 14″ print of  Metamorphosis- Awakening that looks awesome in a bigger size.  The 8″ x 10″‘ prints are $20 plus $3 shipping.  She’s also available as a necklace in my new reiki jewelry line.

I just started making these reiki necklaces and haven’t got them listed yet, although I have to say, they’re awesome!  They’re miniature metallic prints under a magnifying glass dome set into an antiqued copper finish 1″ bezel.  The cord is soft black faux leather with an antiqued copper hook clasp.  They’ll cost $25 plus $3 shipping. When the sun hits them just right, they shoot out light rays, I’m not kidding!

All energy art prints and reiki jewelry are attuned to the healing energy of reiki, light, and love.  I channel these energies into every step of the creative process.

Figure Art 3D Wall Sculpture – Chakra Girl

figure art wall sculpture femal chakra girlChakra Girl” by Primal Painter

Chakra Girl” is the first wall sculpture  in my new series of chakra healing  3D energy art.

“Chakra Girl” measures about 12″ wide and 13″ high.  She’s cut from 1/4″ baltic birch wood, is airbrushed, hand painted, and embellished with swirls of dimensional paint.  This wall sculpture sets about 1/4″ off the wall and is ready to hang. This is an original design and I do all the designing, woodworking, and painting myself.

The seven chakras are respresented by the raised dimensional swirls of paint, connecting to each other with graceful movement and flow.  The dimensional paint adds some textural interest.

My purpose for creating Chakra Girl”  and this series of 3D wall sculpture figure art, is to open, clear, heal, balance and align the chakra system.

Chakra Girl” would be make an interesting conversation piece for the color lover.   In addition,  Chakra Girl” has been attuned to the healing energy of reiki, light, and love and could be used as a healing tool when working with the chakra system.  

You may purchase ‘Chakra Girl” through my Etsy Shop, or you can be in touch with me at laurie-hamilton@sbcglobal.net and I could send you a paypal invoice.  The cost is $85 plus $15 shipping for US.  Contact me for international shipping prices.

To see my line of angel energy art prints, abstract energy art prints, wall sculptures, and reiki jewelry, go to my Etsy Shop and have a look around.

I have many of the same items on Artfire, which is also a very nice venue for lovers of  handmade.  A nice thing about Artfire is you don’t have to join the site to purchase.

Chakra Angel Wall Sculpture by Primal Painter

Chakra Angel” by Primal Painter                                                        

This is an abstract art three dimensional wall sculpture entitled “Chakra Angel that I created in July of 2011.

It incorporates my original energy art print entitled Chakra Angel” into the design as it’s focal point.  I got to thinking that selling prints by themselves is awesome, but it would be cool to present them in a unique way that makes them ready to hang with no framing necessary.

The print itself measures  5″ x 5″  and is mounted on 1/4″ wood.  The edges are embellished with teal and purple dimensional paint to create a textural border.

The background is also cut out of 1/4″ wood and measures about 13″ in diameter.  The design, in my opinion, has a victorian vibe but with somewhat psychedelic colors.  Hey, a new style: Victorian Psychedelic! It’s airbrushed and handpainted and also includes some dimensional dots for texture and interest.

The two pieces of wood are layered together, with the back piece setting out from the wall about 1″ or so.

Energy Art Digital Painting “The Violet Flame”

The Violet Flame” by Primal Painter

Energy art digital painting print

I created this abstract energy art digital painting  entitled “The Violet Flame” in May 2011.

As an energy artist, I seek to create the flow and feeling of the unseen energy all around us into an intuitive visual representation which can be used for transformation and healing.  When I create healing energy art, I not only experience healing for myself, but also set my intention that healing will be experienced by all viewers and the planet.

________________________________________

Title: “The Violet Flame

Size: 8″ x 10″

Paper: Professionally printed on Kodak Endura Metallic Photo Paper. The paper is glossy with an unusual sheen and depth.

Colors: Greens, teals, fuschia, blues, red violet some orange and gold, violet, aqua, a little red

Shipping: Securely shipped through USPS First Class Mail. I’ll let you know when you can expect to receive it.

Signed, dated, and titled on the back

_________________________________________

In working with opening and clearing my own heart chakra, I felt the need to invoke the violet flame. Meditating on this image with the intention of transmuting the cause, effect, record, and memory of negative karma can be very healing.

The violet flame is also called the flame of transmutation, freedom and forgiveness.

From beginning to end, I infused this image with reiki healing energy. My intention was “This image will effectively burn off negative energy and emotions and will transmute them into the positive energy of forgiveness and release.”

I believe that this image could be used as a tool for transfomation and healing. Those who are sensitive to energy might feel a tingling or vibration, or maybe a lift in mood and well being.

This print will be incorporated into reiki jewelry and wall sculptures, so check back often.

Abstract Art New Age Digital Print

Heart/Throat Chakra

The Clearing” by Primal Painter

heart/throat chakra

The Clearing” by Primal Painter

I created this Abstract Art Print entitled “The Clearing” in April 2011.

This is an exciting new art form for me called Energy Art.   As a Healing Energy Artist, I seek to express the unseen energy all around us into something visually intuitive, pure, beautiful and healing.

__________________________________________________________________

Dimensions: 8″ x 10″ Unmatted, unframed, can be hung vertically or horizontally

Colors: Aquamarine, redviolet, fuschia, several hues of blues and purples, black, white

Paper: Professionally printed on Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper. This paper is glossy with a pearlized shimmery glow that enhances the colors in a deep and vibrant way.

Finish: Signed, Dated, and Titled on the back

___________________________________________________________________

The Clearing” was inspired by some ongoing work I’ve been doing on my own heart chakra. Although the heart chakra is associated with the color green, this image is clearing out not only the heart but also the hand chakras, and is heading towards the throat chakra.

This image is beautiful to me, the colors are very soothing to my eyes and heart, the light in the distance gives me hope. Things are complicated and intricately interwoven in this image.

The process of creating this image is very intuitive and flowing, tapping into the energy of the moment and turning it into a visual representation with healing properties.

I focused on infusing the image with reiki healing energy throughout the entire process in the form of colors, light and patterns. I believe that this image could be used as a tool for healing and transformation. Those who are sensitive to energy will feel it in the form of vibrations, tingling or just a lift in mood and well being.
_________________________________________________________________________

I plan on incorporating this print into three dimensional wall sculptures, paintings, and also into pendants, brooches, magnets, and mini wall hangings so keep checking back.    Abstract Art by Primal Painter  or Healing Energy Art by Primal Painter

>"Riding the Waves" Send Light to Joplin, Missouri

>

Riding the Waves” by Primal Painter

Here’s another experiment with painting using Gimp tools.  There are two hidden faces and a little moon in this one….I swear, I can get immersed for hours with this stuff!  I don’t know exactly what the meanings are for these faces. The girl seems to be connecting with lunar energy and the high/low tides of  emotion.  Maybe she has issues with the people represented by the faces and is working on energetically releasing them although the faces don’t necessarily look like enemies, just observers.

I’m not done yet, I see a few more faces in there that need to be pulled out.  Hmmm “pulled out“.  I wonder if that’s like pulling out a tooth? Bringing to the surface to be healed? I don’t know, all I know is that this is some fascinating stuff and hopefully  it will all make sense at some point.

I did a distance Reiki session with the sweetest girl the other day named Anya.  She’s a new Etsy seller and just started a blog.  Her shop is called ShopDionne and her blog is Start With Style .  Anyway, the session was way cool, and I realize once again that I’m clairsentient.  I “feel” what the other person is feeling, including physical sensations, although for some reason, many times I’ll feel things on the opposite side of my body from where the person is feeling them.  I always think I should be clairvoyant where I “see” things because it’s so easy for me to visualize, but I don’t seem to do that during a session.  Sometimes I’ll “hear” things, so I might have a little clairaudience going on, but I don’t really trust that yet….I have a vivid imagination that might be filling my head with thoughts or at least that’s my suspicion.!

Anya is into Reiki and seems to be very clairvoyant. She connected with me also during the session and told me of the visuals she received during it.  She saw me climbing a mountain, the higher and steeper the better, sometimes I’d lose my footing and slip, but I didn’t feel fear, I just kept going.  I was also wearing a cape which she interpreted as me not taking myself too seriously. lol  I’d say that was about right!  When I reached the top, I was being chased by wolves, but I hid in a tree that had spy holes in it. I threw the wolves off by leaving my false self out where they could attack it. She had some nice encouraging things to say about me.

 I thought this was a very accurate reading from someone who didn’t know of my journey at all! I have to really think about that part where I leave my false self outside as a decoy and let the wolves go after it.  That visual  keeps coming into my mind, so I’m thinking there’s some profound wisdom in it that I need to wrap my brain around.  Anyway, it was super cool and I’m really glad to have met her.

Well today is a studio day. The sun is out, the rain has stopped for a few hours and my grass has grown about 10″ in the last week!!  We missed the tornadoes that hit Joplin and Oklahoma.   Joplin is about 1 1/2 hours away, 30% of the city was leveled (Joplin is a fairly large city) and 123 people are dead so far.  The scenes from there are heart wrenching.

I couldn’t believe my eyes this morning.  It had to have been a mistake, but if it wasn’t, I hope someone gets their ass fired.  On tv, there were some previews for the 8  a.m. news. They were showing scenes from Joplin and one was of the rubble of a house  There was a closeup of the dead face of a kid buried underneath.  I almost puked.  Of all the insensitive shit I’ve ever seen, my Gawd that was some of the worst.

Sorry for that visual.  Put it out of your head, but send love and light to that poor community and the traumatized  family of that little kid.

Later,

Laurie

>Energy Art using Gimp’s Airbrush Tool

>

Work in Progress by Primal Painter


I’ve started to do some actual rendering with Gimp as opposed to my usual freestyle happy accidents.  This is one of my first attempts.  I came up with a happy accident, then went into it with the warping tool and starting moving things around and painting with the airbrush tool.  If you enlarge it, you can see the details better. I’m torn between making the details in her face more distinct or making them even more vague.


 I’m really clumsy with that darn mouse, I wish I had one of those tablets where you can use a pen to draw on the screen.  Wow, I could really do some awesome things with that, but alas, it’s out of my reach financially at the moment.

Now for a little something I don’t normally do.  Sara, a wonderful painter who creates very inspirational work, tagged me on her blog Simply Sarafina Paintings to fill out the ABC’s of Me questionnaire. I’m not usually into that kind of thing, I might moan and groan a little at the thought, but I didn’t want to let Sara down.  Copy and pasting wasn’t working, and after answering the questions twice (TWICE), I finally gave up.  So Melinda from Inspiration Earth, sent me a pdf file and lo and behold, I think it’s going to work…..(groan…just kidding).


So for the THIRD time…………..

A. Age:  50 (what?) Did I say 50? I meant 49
B Bed size:  Twin size which is right next to my boyfriend’s queen size. Weird, you might say, but frankly I got tired of being bounced around all night like I’m riding in the back of an old pickup truck driving really fast through a bumpy pasture.  (That’s fun, by the way, when I’m AWAKE)
C. Chore you hate:  All of them, especially dishes….and vacuuming…..and dusting……
D. Day:  Today or maybe tomorrow
E. Essential start to the day:  Doggy kisses.  Boyfriend kisses? Eh, not so much (just kidding, that’s too mean….heheh.)
F. Favorite color: All the shades of purple
G. Gold or Silver:  Gold…..or silver
H. Height: 5’8″
I. Instruments:  Piano and saxophone when I was a young whippersnapper. Actually I wasn’t a whippersnapper until I was in college…What is a whippersnapper anyway? Is there any whipping of any snappers going on? hehee (don’t go there, Laurie)
J.Job title:  Professional….uh…….Bum?  Oh I meant Professional Artist
K. Kids: A 21 year old daughter, Andi and a bunch of furry, feathery kids – 5 dogs, 3 cats, 2 goats, 2 bunnies (down from 28 when I realized the meaning of humping like bunnies), 9 chickens
L. Live:  Yes, I Live, some days more than others.
M. Mum’s name: Velma, she passed on from bone cancer in ’99
N. Nicknames:  Laurie Belle, Mama Cat
O. Overnight hospital stays:  4 overnighters
P.Pet peeve:  People who eat crunchy food with their mouths open, like Doritos (Gah! I’ll keeell you!!)
Q. Quote from a movie:  “Ai-Yi Yi Yi Yi Yi Yi Yiiiiiiiiiiiii”  from the movie Avatar
R. Right or left handed:  Right
S. Siblings:  Older sister and brother Nancy and Steve, a younger brother Eric
T. Time you wake up:  6:30 to 8:00 a.m.
U. Underwear:  oh uh, (blushing), no thank you
V. Vegetables you dislike:  slimy cooked spinach like they used to serve in the school cafeteria (grrr-ossss)
W. What makes you run late:  My dogs chasing the car down the road then having to turn back and put them in the house, forgetting something and having to go back, putting things off until the last minute, not accounting for traffic, photo ops
X. X-rays you’ve had:  tons which may explain my unearthly glow
Y. Yummy food you make:  Hahahahaha, I don’t cook (at all) but sugar snap peas that I’ve grown in the garden are the best
Z. Zoo:  Zoos suck


Well I did it!


By the way, I got the most amazing package from Melinda, Taylor, Jordan, and Riley yesterday.  It made tears come to my eyes it was so sweet.  Melinda sent me some orange flavored lip balm and my lips still feel soft from yesterday. She also sent me some Invigorating Hand Sanitizer made from witch hazel and essential oils…it’s really amazing stuff, and so is she.  The handmade cards she sent are absolutely gorgeous….and I mean gorgeous!  Taylor sent me a lovely purple bookmark with my name on it, Jordan sent me a super cool handmade card and four of her needle felted acorns (so cute! I have the perfect little bowl).  Riley sent me a handmade zebra card and a sweet note.  Let me take a picture real quick…….



That photo doesn’t really do those handmade cards justice, they’re extremely well done and appealing! Thank you so much Smitten Family.  It wasn’t expected or necessary, but I’m thrilled and touched!


Now for a couple of pictures of the things I smell when I walk outside (in addition to dogs and goats….)

 Orange Blossoms are loaded this year….

 Nothing is better than honeysuckle!

 Mini Holliehocks are gorgeous!

Wild roses….yum…..

I think I forgot to size all these photos down.  Does this page load super slow because of it?


Have an Awesome Sunday!!!

The Violet Flame” by Primal Painter

This is my latest Energy Art print entitled “The Violet Flame“. The violet flame is also called the flame of transmutation, freedom and forgiveness.. I really  like this one,  but then I say that about almost every new print I come up with.  This one came about after I saw the Dalai Lama last week and he was talking about forgiveness. 
Forgiveness…..sounds so easy but for me is so hard.  I thought to myself  “What the…? Why, why is it so freakin’ hard to forgive those mean people and circumstances that are ancient history but the scenario continues to play out in my brain?”  Can anyone relate to this or is this just something I do?  
Mostly what I’m having problems with are scenarios where I see myself as having been victimized in some way. I can say the words “I forgive you”…..nuthin’……I can cut the energetic cords to the people and situations involved…..nuthin’……I can put a shield around myself so those cords don’t re-attach….nuthin’… 
I was driving to Fayetteville the other day, and here comes some re-runs that trigger a flare of anger.  I decided to thank the Universe for having me live through these scenes of victimization, acknowledged that I still feel the anger, and envisioned the image above, “The Violet Flame“,  as taking in that anger and burning it up, transforming it into forgiveness and compassion.
Within two seconds of envisioning the Violet Flame,  I let out a howl of emotional pain. Vague flashes of faces and feelings were going through my mind.  I had to pull off the road and had a full-on meltdown of crying, whining and sobbing, strange noises that I can’t even describe… good grief, you’d think I was being tortured.  Then it was over….gone.  That night, I had a dream that I was in a pleasant social situation with a few of the  people who had hurt me in the past.  Interesting….
This release didn’t cover everyone, unfortunately, but at least it’s a start.  Also, I can clearly see that what’s under the anger and resentment is pain.  I suppose now I have to keep doing it until all of it’s gone. Gah….always some kind of uncomfortable internal work to do….
I notice that the place I feel the constriction and blockage in my body is in my throat and neck.  My throat chakra might be more damaged than I’d thought.  It’s probably an ongoing thing that goes way back, but I wonder if it has something to do with when I was attacked and raped. The fat end of a glass bottle was rammed down my throat, and I couldn’t scream.  Strangely, I couldn’t scream even before the bottle was down my throat. It was like a nightmare….And I haven’t really told the whole story, it’s like a deep shameful secret.
I wonder if I need to tell that story.  I just don’t know if this blogging situation is the appropriate venue for it.  I hate to think that something I’ve written has caused anyone to feel down or to feel sorry for me or anything of a negative nature. I’d rather make people smile and this story is very disturbing, yet it’s also a story of survival and a slow motion journey to healing. I don’t know, what do you think?
For some good news, Pixie Campbell, a fab Etsy artist and writer included “The Violet Flame” in her blog post the other day. I was stoked! Check it out:  http://pixiecampbell.typepad.com/pink_coyote/2011/05/terra-incognita.html  Within 24 hours of posting The Violet Flame in my Etsy Shop,  I sold two prints, so that was super cool!  Sometimes an image just resonates…
It’s not raining today (yet).  It’s like living in a rain forest around here lately! I love rain forests, but oh how I miss my beloved sun and all the damage it does to my skin!

Have a good one!

>Chakra Angel

>


In response to the crazy weirdness I’ve been feeling for WEEKS, I thought I’d do a little evaluation of how my chakra system looks right now.  I created “Chakra Angel” a few days ago with the intention of seeing what the heck’s up.  Frankly, I’m tired of feeling all discombobulated. (This is my word today, so I might have to find a reason to use it again.) (Why is it my word? I dunno, it’s just a weird word…..discombobulated… hee!…who came up with that one, I wonder?)

I see a huge crown chakra at the top, nice, I’m glad to see that.  One thing I usually don’t have a problem with is a good strong connection to the Source, you know, God, the Universe, a Higher Power..  Sometimes I get all discombobulated (hee) with my Higher Self, but the Source is almost always a constant.  

I’m surprised to the see that the sixth chakra,  the second from the top, is smallish and dark.  I always fancy myself as being an intuitive type, but according to this, my perceptions are…….discombobulated.  

The throat chakra, well I’m not surprised to see that one compromised.  I’ve always been an internal type of person. Sometimes I don’t say what I mean, or I mean things I don’t say or I don’t say anything at all. Instead  I’ll fume or bury or pretend.  Not exactly the ideal scenario, not that I want to yell and scream….or do I?   

The heart chakra, not bad.  What a surprise! Cool! Two weeks ago that puppy would’ve been closed up, maybe not even visible, so there’s been some progress. Awesome!

Wow, the yellow solar plexus, the third, is HUGE! What’s up with that I wonder? The third chakra is about self identity, how I see myself, how much do I believe in myself, how confidant I am.  This is a good sign…but maybe it’s too big, too open?  A third chakra that’s too open can cause stomach and digestive issues from not feeling safe in your environment.  I don’t have any of that so maybe I’m good..

The second chakra is  not looking too bad. Good deal.  I’m glad the work I’ve done on the second chakra is holding up although it’s slightly out of alignment.  That’s easy enough to fix…. Visualize each chakra in perfect alignment with the others, listen for thoughts popping up as to why it got out of alignment in the first place.  

The first chakra is looking a little puny. I’ll do some more work there. Extending down from the first chakra are the start of some decent grounding cords but they don’t seem to be too strong.  I’ll work on those, too, as I do have a tendency to float away into la-la land. (but, but…I  love la-la land!)


A new way of diagnosis, cool!  Did you see the moon face at the bottom of the angel?  Did  you know that you can actually airbrush with Gimp?  How fun is that?! I’m going to start doing more hidden faces, images, and figures.  I love art that has surprises!  I’d really like to learn how to use the “layers” tool so I can superimpose  photos onto each other.  


There’s some kind of tool, or computer where a person can actually hold a pen and draw on the screen instead of the clumsiness of using the mouse.  (I’m terrible at drawing with the mouse!)   Anyone know what those things are called?  They probably cost a gajillion dollars or maybe even two gajillion dollars, but sure would be fun!


Well, I’m off…. Maybe someday I’ll learn how to put page tabs at the top of this blog and include a chakra guide.  I forget sometimes that not everyone is familiar with chakras, Reiki, and other energy work terms.


Have a good one!!

“Angel Heart” by Primal Painter

I’m super excited to have been featured on one of my very favorite blogs of all time  Dreams of Fae!  Taylor Lynn is an amazing young girl, an excellent writer, a fantastic photographer with a great eye, a thinker, a protector of the environment, an animal lover, an avid reader, she’s just got it all!  Her blog is definitely a must follow.  And while you’re at it, check out her personal blog Perfectly Sensible Nonsense which is just as awesome as her business blog .  To see her photography skills at work, check out her Etsy Shop The Forest Faery.  Thanks Tay, I’m honored that you thought of me!

I created this Energy Art Angel (above) a few days ago in response to the issues I’ve been having with my heart chakra painting.  (What? Issues with the heart chakra? Surely not…..)   Gah!  That’s right, mucho crapola has been tied up in the ole’ heart chakra.  

It’s just as I expected, and as hard as it is,  I’m grateful to have the opportunity to clear out some of these issues.  This angel is infused with the movement and colors of several chakras  with the flow of energy going up and out, passing through the crown and transforming  into light and forgiveness.  The area around the heart is dark, but the light is illuminating the pain and 
the anger, bringing them out of the shadows. 


There’s some interesting symbolism in this image, for example, the shape way above the angels head is in the shape of a shield (a light source is at the base). Do you see it?  I thought it was interesting that a way of protecting the heart is in the saying “Shield’s up.”  There are others, too, but somehow my posts always get sooooo loooonnnnggggggg….



My heart chakra painting started out good, it was really pretty actually.  Then I took a break, looked at it a few days later and thought “Wow, this isn’t real, this is how I want to be, but it’s certainly not how I am“.  So I set my intention to paint my heart chakra as it is now.  So now it’s  muddy, dark, messy, and  ugly…..and then the issues arose.  I guess it takes being authentic and honest to get to the root of things and bring about true healing.  I sure wish I could just fake my way through things, but I’ve tried that….over and over…. and it doesn’t work!

I stumbled across the following message somewhere, can’t remember where.  I really need to work on paying attention! Anyway, I thought it was a good message:



Daily Channeled Message® by Dyan Garris 

Sometimes all we can see is what is directly in front of us. In our inability to see the bigger picture, to see the potential that is around the bend, we sabotage ourselves. And sometimes our expectation and attachment to the way things are “supposed” to look when we get around that bend is what sets us up for disappointment. When you can move along the path knowing that whatever shows up along the way and whatever things look like when you get to the clearing, they are all in perfect order, no matter what you believed was “supposed” to happen, then you have just freed yourself. Today’s energy asks that we try to see both the forest AND the trees and KNOW that the rest will come. 


The Clearing Card 

The Clearing 
“The clearing you have come to here
May be a place of rest
Patience then is needed now
Before you can resume the quest.” 






Well, the sun is actually out today, it’s a miracle!  We actually had three more inches of rain in the last two days on top of the 18″ we’d had over the past week!  Everything’s so green and bright….wheee!!!


I’m about done with all this seriousness…I think the next post should be frivolous and fun!




I’m off!  Have a great one!


Laurie
