“Fertilization”

“Fertilization”

So here it is, finished at last.( touch curser to image to enlarge ) And i think it is interesting to consider the word >fertilization, and why it was chosen  for the title. The word can be used to discribe the fertilization as in an egg by sperm in mating of a male and female to reproduce….also, to adding nutrients to enrich soil for greater plant production, or pollenation as in flowers or orchids, which can be somewhat complex procedure . In all cases the word means a creating of a new life or form….as well as to enrich.  In any case, here is a change occurring, similar to a chrysalis when transforming into a butterfly….where the substance “juices” transform….and something altogether new comes of it. This painting to me has an excitement…almost a joyful, ticklish sensation…and the movement and structure of the orchid suggests to me that there is a stimulating metamorphosis occurring in the purest lightning flash of a moment.

Inspired…grateful…and, on with the next installment of the morphing painting

And support from authentic people of the Path, whom i deeply respect is coming in and i feel charged by it!!There are those who See my art in intuitive, energetic and sensual ways…and that is pure delight for me!!! Profound communication is thus exchanged! And also…my next installment of the on-going morphing of this painting i am calling “Orb Two” until it is finished and a name is born for it. It is getting deeper in tones….ready for the Light to enliven it!! That comes next….and i am excited to go there with it! This project is showing me the importance of letting the painting take me instead of the other way around. I was stuck for awhile, not knowing where to go next to complete it. A very wise friend reminded me about allowing it to take me. Then i found myself painting again. This same concept applies to the Spiritual Path….something we surely cannot make happen. It advances and deepens as we learn to Surrender to it.    Share on...
