Here’s yet another piece done with the idea of positive visualization. Again, it was intended to find a relationship, therefore the subject of a couple. This was done closer to the time I actually met Richard. Did it work? Still undecided.
Here’s another sample of trying positive visualization through artwork. This example is mixed. In search of a significant other, I designed a drawing of the Perfect Masculine. Truth is, I did find someone (named Richard), but so much later, I don’t know if it could be considered cause and effect. Anyway, here’s the piece, note the masculine elements in it…the peacock feathers, the lion in the full moon. This is titled “Richard, Before I Knew Him”.
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.
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’m still working on Sentinel, which is near completion.
I’m waiting to hear back about a juried show. I’m not sure if I’ve been accepted into it or not, or whether there is more for me to do to be selected. I emailed, no answer.
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.
