Blue Heron Visions

COLLAGING THE ALCHEMY OF WORDS AND IMAGES

Mixed Media & Paintings


In this section of the Gallery, you will find my explorations into abstract painting and mixed media.

Inspiration for the Journey Series

For this mixed media series, I used chakra colors or a blend of chakra colors as the basis of each painting.  I added the collage elements as a way to emphasize the meaning of the chakras represented by the painting.  In some of the work, the quotation inspired the collage; in others, the collage inspired the quotation.  From left to right, the titles are:

Source’s Wordless Web (Indigo, Violet–6th and 7th chakras and includes the colors of all other chakras); Featured quote:  “There is a Voice that doesn’t use Words.  Listen.”–Rumi

Fabric of the Universe (Shades of Blue–5th chakra); Featured quote: “Remember, the entrance door to the sanctuary is inside you.”–Rumi

A Heart Grows Alive (Yellow and Green–3rd and 4th chakras); Featured quote: “…anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.”–David Whyte

A Precious Object (Yellow–3rd chakra); Featured quote: “Treating myself like a precious object makes me strong.” –Taken from Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way

Your True Self (Blend of red and orange–1st and 2nd chakras); Featured quote: “Be Your True Self”

Balanced Energies Series

This series of 3 paintings is based on the energy process used by Mary Bauman.  From left to right, the titles are:

The Black Hole of Infinite Possibilities/Teeming (Teaming) with Life/Emergence
