I have been recently more about aesthetics than painting. The reason is very simple: I avoid painting when my own energy levels are low due to physical pain or mental dissatisfaction or bad mood.
We all probably used to have sense of energy and its vibrations, just like some animals and birds still do. There are energy-sensitive people, people who do not feel or recognize any energy flow, but experience it subconsciously and people who are unable to perceive energy at all, even though, they just like everybody else are affected by that. I paint implementing lots of good energy in my creations, it’s not only because I cannot make myself draw or paint gruesome, terrifying or evil objects and scenes, but mainly because that is who I am: a medium for converting the great energy from the beautiful nature scenes, flowers, still life objects into the sensitively perceivable feeling of good vibrations. I doubt this could be anyhow felt through the internet images or prints since these are copies of copy copies. One thing I know is that people who physically look at my paintings in person can experience these energies, assuming they do not belong to the energetically deaf category.
I have painted numerous red flowers as commissions, poppies, wild roses and similar florals on request of people who can sense energy and are able to recognize it. Some of them have placed these paintings in the entrance hall to prevent bad luck and bad energy entering their personal living space. I know a couple who hang a dark red, pink and white flower painting of mine at the upper staircase overlooking the entire stair, and they told ever since everything started to just become better and better in their life. Just to clarify some things: positive energy is not the same as positive thinking. We have to work hard and we need to inherit or develop sort of sixth sense to become somebody who is able to give positive energy to other people or to surround oneself and items in these surroundings with such an energy.
Some people wanted red flowers for their living rooms and some for bedrooms as an energy carrier for passion and love. I believe any appropriate place is good and these paintings work because I have puts lots of energy into them. I take it from the beauty of objects to be painted and these paintings become a shield to stop bad energy flow.
I was recently feeling very sick and suffered terribly from side effects of medications which I had to use, and the consequences of avoiding these meds could have led to bad outcome, so I limited my creative efforts to taking pictures, and I have placed quite a few already in my new blog http://inesepogalifeschool.com/. Basically, I was doing just the minimum and quite honestly feeling bad about that. My grandmother was a healer, she knew everything about energy, herbs, grasses, colors and impact of words, spoken and written, and thankfully, I learned a lot of that, may have even inherited some of this knowledge. However, I don’t know anybody who can help themselves as much as it is possible to help others. Quite often I remember her and regret she is not around anymore because if she was, I wouldn’t even need these medications.
I also uploaded some of the most recent images onto Fine Art America site and could not stop enjoying the beautiful products they are now offering.
