INTERACTION OF SELVES

Affirmation
By Crisman Art

Within God’s body as ONE
I live in my golden dome
The gold I am – I do now claim
Since all in God is of the same.

All aspects of my selves
I take now of the shelves
Items of talents and my special gift
Observe my own consciousness shift.

But, I am also my own rapist and thieve
Deprive myself of what I achieve
Since I am employee, and also boss
Responsible for all gain and loss.

I am my sister, brother, and child
The floor I walk on in squares is tiled
Mirror reflector of my colour scheme
All facets of myself as being.

I am the crystal in my hand
Representing totality of fertile land
I am all trees and plants I see
Aware of our common destiny.

All animals I know, I am
But play the part of sacrificial lamb
I am the atoms within and around
Drifting dust particles abound.

I am all oceans nurturing life
Cleansing and loving of mothers hive
I fly, swim, and now walk tall
When I am with God, I have it all!

I am Christiane Behrmann

German living in South Africa, an expressionist, symbolist and mystic multi media artist. All my creations are mostly from inside and about unity and communication between all life forces. For I believe that we are here on Earth to learn how to love and to compliment each other, expanding our consciousness.

Hugging All,
Christiane

    WOW!!!! This is wonderful Christiane. I adore the way you have expressed the concept of your writing in the painting. Another masterpiece my dear frind. You are such a talent xx

  • You are to generous, Angela! Thank you so much! I was just busy editing Big Joe, and as I came back into the Bubble, here are you with “Call me Joe”, can never be a coincidence! I mean the energy of the name, whilst I worked on my text…perhaps something beautiful is going to happen with all “Joe’s”, who knows? With great love, Christiane

    Wow… Chirstiane this is amazing! Your painting draws you into your writting and you writting draws you back into your painting. I hope that made sense, I’m not always the greatest at expressing myself so I just write what I’m feeling.

  • You make me smile this evening, Susan, thank you so much for your kind comment. it’s true, I also never look at comments, just at your art work, and then I write from the heart. Browsing in your gallery is likewise very exciting. Love from Christiane

    Wow work like this just sends me elsewhere.. your style is so profound!

  • You make my night now, Linaji, thank you so much for this great compliment. At the moment for a few years now my gallery is sleeping with the spiders. But before Inflation, people used to come. Sometimes so disorientated when they left that they took wrong turn-offs and sometimes got lost in wrong streets finding home again. Perhaps for marketing I am in the wrong country. On the other hand all is profound and drastic in S.A. and good for expression of imagination. Cannot have both perhaps. Good Night Hug to you from Christiane

    Wonderful art. Love it!

  • Warmest “Thank You” hugs to you, John! This painting was in the Pretoria News 1986, under the art and culture section “whats on”. The only ever time that one of my paintings where shown in this section under all the many functions in print only. Long, long ago…and you discovered it again! Gratefully from Christiane
