Acrylic and mixed media on canvas
26″ × 36″
I have called it ‘The God Code‘ after the revelations that Gregg Braden has discovered that we possess a code in our DNA that literally translates, in Hebrew, to ‘God Eternal, in the body’.
I also had an epiphany to use all 4 senses whilst painting, I mean why not?!? Before I started I got the distinct message that I was going to paint something that was healing and enlightening to the observer. So I wanted to incorporate smell, touch, spirit and sound (I left taste out, for obvious reasons — unless you want a tongue full of chemicals!).
So this painting has been infused with:
1. Rosemary and Lavender (I instinctively chose these two out of my garden. When I later looked up the properties, you guessed it, lavender is for healing and Rosemary is for remembering — which you could say would be ‘enlightening’). I made a tea out of it and used it in my brush water. I also lit myrrh incense which is apparently good for tranquility.
2. Prayer for the observer to obtain healing and enlightenment through the art/visual resonance (trying to emulate Dr. Masaru Emoto‘s fine work with water and the effects that positive words and emotions has on it).
3. Bach. I played my Bach CD on repeat until I was finished with the painting. So it is infused with sacred, cosmic sound.
4. Different textures. I used a great granulated paint that is awesome to touch. I also used a glass liner to add some raised pattern effects.
