In 2003, I heard a voice whisper in my right ear, “Go buy plates and paint on them”. So I did. I bought a $300 table at a local consignment store and created an art studio in my basement. While listening to mixes of my vocal cd “i am free” https://pamelanielsen.com/products/i-am-free-4, a celebration of God’s healing in my life from memories of childhood abuse, I began painting my emotions through the vibrant colors of the chakras. 7 primary energy centers in the body that distribute, assimilate and transform energy. I would enter my studio at times with very heavy emotional energy, and when I had painted a few pieces, that energy shifted dramatically. Painting these colors literally shifted me from darkness to light!The designer Frank H. Mahnke says “Color creates a sensory experience that impacts us physiologically.” I experienced it first hand. This is why I paint. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to my "Design with" series to see what color can do for you.
