For the last few years, I have combined my ability to paint with my ability to do psychometry/psychic readings. I call these "Personal Energy Portraits" which are in essence a reading on canvas.
I started attending psychic fairs as a reader and decided I would take a few paintings to use as a backdrop. A young man stopped by my space and asked if I could do a sketch of his energy. I told him I had absolutely no idea, I had never tried it before. I offered to let him sit down and let me give it a try and he agreed.
All I had was a pencil and some notebook paper when this young man sat with me. I sketched and became aware this would turn my life in a new direction. It was an amazing experiment.
The following week I put a post on my Facebook page asking for guinea pigs willing to come to my studio. I told them that if they would volunteer their time, I would send them home with a piece of art. I had approx. six-seven individuals take me up on my offer. Each piece became further confirmation that I was on the right path and a few weeks later I took my "Personal Energy Portraits" out to the public.
Since that time, I have gone from notebook paper and carbon pencil to colored card stock and colored pencils, and now I am working in acrylics on stretched canvas. The paintings are all as unique and interesting as each of the people that sit with me. The readings are generally a signature of where an individual is emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and occasionally physically. They will point to things in the past as well as what the future might hold. They will show where a person is on their journey toward awakening or enlightenment, and point them in the direction of their next step.
I continue to do the 6" x 6" colored card stock portraits and have expanded the original 12" x 12" canvas portraits to include a larger 20" x 20" canvas for those who really dig the art.
They are fun, entertaining and enlightening pieces of original art that can aid you in remembering the reading, they can be used as a point of focus for meditation, and I've been told, new ah-ha moments come sometimes weeks later by viewing the artwork.
Now-a-days I not only do Mind Body Spirit Expos, but also Health & Wellness events, centers, and Metaphysical book stores. Plus for those wanting to see my gallery or have a more private reading, I do in-studio and online sessions. I'm also available for parties.
