Painting - Watercolor And Graphite
A flowing green, gold, yellow and blue abstract watercolor painting filled with curving lines, voluptuous curlicues, sacred spirals, tender tendrils, percolating bubbles and layers of color...........
I hope this piece is both uplifting and soothing. I was in a very meditative state while painting it, and enjoyed the natural motion and colors. The combination of warm and cool shades gives a sense of sunshine and green landscape with open sky. The painting also has a delicate iridescent shimmer to it.
I was flying back to Denver from a trip to Sonoma, when I painted this painting, on the airplane.
Quoting from http://www.whats-your-sign.com/spiral-meaning.html
A few spiral meaning keywords to start our spin around spiral symbolism will include attributes such as: Balance, Progress, Direction, Initiation, Centering, Expanding, Awareness, Connection, Journeying, Development.
Perhaps it�s most prolific appearance is in Celtic symbology where we see the spirals decorating a myriad of their ancient artifacts. In Celtic art and symbolism, we can intuit a few meanings from the forcefully present spiral:
Evolution and holistic growth
Letting go, surrender, release
Awareness of the one within the context of the whole
Connectivity and union with deific and cosmic energies
Revolutions of time, stars, planets and the way of natural progress
I particularly like this last "connectivity to the Divine" observation. Indeed, I think ancient Celtic artists used the spiral symbol as a mind-altering creative process in which the act of creating a spiral in their work released their minds into a creative splendor. Perhaps that�s why we see them dominate the Celtic world; out of a strong desire to step outside the physical and enter a gossamer domain where dreams and intuition take hold of awareness.
