starting on the flowers…

            These were painted in two washes in various shades of red and orange. They are named `Spiritual Happiness` and that is just what I had four days back on the day of Maha Shivarathri when I had been fasting and chanting `Om namah Shivaya`. If you practice awareness … on the breath or on the thoughts for example, you could instead practice it with repeating some words of power, whichever ones you feel an affinity for. You will really see the difference. The sound of the mantra acts like a sword cutting through knots of resistance, showing the light behind, glimpses of mystery and magic from beyond which we so crave for in our day to day life.

  1. I love how the geranium is progressing. I never thought of using orange as an underpainting for red flowers. I usually use yellow. Orange underpainting seems to give a deeper punch to intensify the red value.
