My 'Resonant Geometry' Art - Where it Comes From & How it's Made
Although I often paint in a traditional manner such as acrylic on canvas, it’s my digital art that draws much attention. People are curious how these come about, so I’ll share the process with you. It starts by being in a meditative state. If I’m creating a Soul Portrait or Logo for a person, I stay in meditation for about 20 minutes as I briefly open my eyes to sketch what is perceived in my third eye. When I’m doing the pineal toning (DNA Activation) art, I listen to the sounds of the person making the tones, then I open my eyes and quickly sketch the moving image I see. Next I close my eyes again, tune back in to the sounds. The process repeats over and over for about 4-5 minutes until the toning ends. It’s a bit difficult to rapidly switch back and forth between going inward and outward, using my intuitive senses and my physical body. The whole process happens very fast, and I find that days or weeks later when I look at the sketch to make the final art, I can instantly connect to the whole experience. It’s like looking at a photo of your vacation and being able to recall all the details of the trip.
The symbols, patterns and geometry that I see come from a place that I believe to be inside of me and outside of me at the same time. When a person has a holy experience, and describes being visited by their guides, an ascended master or spiritual energy, is something external descending on them, or are they going so deep within that they connect to the microcosm in their cells and atoms? I say both are correct, because it’s quantum. The energies I see are patterns arising from the vibration of sound, and these patterns are in our DNA as well as in the cosmos.
So how does the art go from being a very primitive sketch to a fine-tuned piece of art? I sit with my original sketch and meditate. I ask to be shown how to assemble the series of sketches into one piece of art that will bring forth the energy in the best way possible. It’s the same dilemma faced by those who design posters for movies: how to portray the essence of the movie in a single image? I feel intuitively guided as I sketch and bring the image to life. Once I feel it’s right, I ask my guides and if it’s not correct, they let me know. I always work in pencil and use the eraser because it’s a creative process.
Next, I open a computer file and start to build the layers that make up the art. Usually I start with the background, but not always. Creating each layer a complex process, involving decisions about dozens of settings and how that layer should interact with the layers above and below it. Most of the settings are numerical, and I use numerology to support the ‘magic’ in the art. Working layer by layer, a digital painting in the DNA series can take anywhere from 18-80 hours. A logo is generally 15 hours and a Soul Portrait is about 25 hours. The piece is complete when I ‘know’ it’s right. I only draw what I see, no matter how badly I might want to add in crystals or sparkles or bright colors. If I didn’t see it in the original session, it’s not going in the art.
Digital art is unlike traditional art in that each print is considered the original. Whereas someone might like to own the ‘original’ of a reproduced painting, a digital file IS the original and exists in the electronic bytes and megabytes in my computer. IT is truly art that is held in the ethers. When a print is made from the original file, it makes the art tangible and is considered the original print. You’re getting an original when you purchase my digital art, and I take great care in getting them printed on archival metallic paper, and packaged in clear protective sleeves on acid-free backing board. These prints should stay vibrant for over 100 years. Long live art!
