Art Blog: Sunset at the Park

“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.” – Nicholas Sparks

I used oil paints on paper to create this artwork

Art Blog: Shiva

Shiva acrylic painting

Shiva is the God I believe in.  Painting him on canvas for the 1st time really stirred something deep inside of me. Shiva is known to be the Destroyer of darkness within. And I have to admit, whilst painting him, I had to face a lot of my ‘darkness’, my fears, my insecurities, and aspects of my side that I refused to see that were actually my strengths.

As I progressed through this painting (which took a few weeks since I had to keep walking away from it), my meditations became deeper, my dreams more intense. Instead of panicking, I knew this was a process of me really using ‘Shiva’s energy’ to dive deeper, and I simply let things happen.

Within me, there was so much peace, so much joy.  So many things became clear, including my focus and my purpose. The ideas that started flowing were incredible. I started jotting everything down. Dreams started connecting, and finally – the old fell through, and the new emerged.

There is only one poem / quote that always reminds me of my bond to Shiva 🙂

‘I AM the daughter of a KING
who is not moved by the world,
for my GOD is with me
and goes before me.
I do not fear
because I am HIS.
I AM the daughter of Shiva.’
