Divine Inspiration

So, what comes first , the inspiration for the painting itself or the words ?  For me,  that depends on the type of painting it is. For any of my landscapes or portraits, the inspiration almost always comes from a picture or vision that sparks my inner light. 

 But for any of my work , that I refer to as "Divinely Inspired, the inspiration almost always comes to me in the form of a message. Some other day I'll go go into more detail about how I  began receiving these messages ................yes, I love to paint, but a poet, I am  not : )
So it is without a doubt, that I know these messages are not from me.   They gave me comfort in a time of great despair when I needed it . And now it feeds my soul to be able to paint them.

The one above has touched many people, including myself........it started from these beautiful words :
Let your pain drift upon the wings of an angel and mingle with the light of God.

They then made their way into this painting:
I truly hope these angel inspired words give anyone who is suffering in any way, as much comfort as they do me.

Where Creation Begins

So here I am in my studio,  AKA "my dining room . At this point this is where I create all my paintings.

I love painting in here ..its got such a great energy . I am playing with the idea of  turning an old house on my property into a studio .......that is if the kids dont' win out and turn it into their hang out place.

 Right behind me is my Angel Altar. I often have candles burning on there while I paint . Look closely at the top photo, can you see the two orbs behind me ?

 Here's a close up. All kinds of goodies here !

I think a huge part of creating is having a space all your own that you feel totally at home in .
