Checking out my Chakras

A couple of weeks ago I went to a very interesting and enlightening workshop about chakras called Attracting Prosperity Through the Chakras. It was put on by Karen Mcbride at the Tranquil Garden in Oshawa, Ontario. Karen was an excellent facilitator and had lots of interesting handouts for us to take home. From the assessment we took that night I found out that I was a feeler, a relater, and a shaman. I was really moved by the information I received during the workshop and was inspired to create a journal entry in one of my round robin journals. This page is going out to Kalona in England. It is entitled “Checking out my Chakras”. I used regular acrylic paints, letter stencils, various sizes of Punchinella (sequin waste), and bubble wrap. I really love using found objects to make shapes in my paintings. I am a believer that making art does not need to be an expensive adventure.

Here is another post of a piece of art I did for Kalona’s first journal in our group. I seem to do some of my best work in her journals. If I do say so myself. LOL!

I Find it very amusing and sometimes unsettling that when I attempt to meditate I can only see greys and misty tones, yet when I paint, I paint bright colours. Does anyone know the reason for this??
