Every once in awhile, I paint a piece that celebrates an incredible hurdle I have overcome in my life. "divine Light" is that piece for me.
On April 28, 2023, I broke both of my wrists. Such a painful journey. And soul searching as well! I had metal plates put in both--my right wrist--my dominant one--had to be totally reconstructed. 8 months later I found myself in my studio ready to paint again. My wrists were strong but stiff.
When I do energy work for myself and others, I always envision a straight white light pouring through the crown chakra at the top of the head and spreading throughout the cells. Clearing out the negative and replacing with divine light and love. I was in need of such a shift, so that's what I painted.
Over the years, I have created tools to paint strokes anywhere from 3’ to possibly 30’, so I began painting my 7' stroke. I absolutely love the way my tools glide the paint across acrylic. So clean. So smooth. And I have really come to love the pearlescent paints by Arteza. They have such a shimmer to them in the natural light. So beautiful. However I painted the white stroke with a satin white paint. I love the opaqueness of it--very grounding, solid and strong.
"divine Light" is painted on an 84x52 piece of 1/8" gloss white acrylic. It is meant to hang vertical, but can be hung horizontal if that fits your space better. It floats 1" off the wall. Pics below show "divine Light" in natural light and with a spot light. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
