There has been much talk among New Age enthusiasts, and recently, even those in the mainstream about positive visualization as a method to getting what you want in life. I’m not so sure about the truth of this, I think perhaps one must be clear of all negative thoughts to get it to work.
I figured since art was a way of concentrating on an image, shouldn’t it possibly be a tool for positive visualization? I am posting some examples of my experiments, with notes on whether they worked or not.
The first one I’m posting definitely did not work. It was a try at financial prosperity, and I’m still struggling with money problems. This is “Wealth”.
I’m working on a new piece, “Autumn Song”. I miss the turning of leaves I used to get in Connecticut. Fall used to be a time of tangy apple cider, pumpkins, and crisp cool weather. I’m trying to capture some of that here, and also a tribute to long held love and relationships.
I’ve been taking sick time from work, and not getting much done in artwork either.
From my apartment in Queens, I can see Manhattan in the distance during the winter. In the warmer weather, the old sycamore blocks the view. I believe I have posted one summer picture of the sycamore, here’s one of the winter ones, where I try to capture the mood of a gray winter’s day. I did two of these, and I’m not sure which one is more successful.
