About my Healing Palette
I work with a 6-color spectral palette that aligns with the chakras. Spectral colors of the rainbow tune these energy centers, balancing alternating wavelengths of color with jewel tones and pastel shades.
I love to paint on medium-value, color-toned canvas, reminiscent of my favorite pastel papers. Dark and light, warm and cool ~ balance in each painting from the start. Metallic pigmented under-painting amplifies radiance and reflects Light back on the viewer like a mirror.
Feelings and emotions inspire my paintings. It might be the marriage of a child, or the birth of a grandchild, or memory of a parent. The joy of life infused with my passion for living, in good times and through trials, heals the heart in each and every painting.
Hanging Your Art
All my artwork is wired and ready to hang. To help keep your artwork level, I recommend hanging your large works from two picture hanging hooks spaced apart on the wall.
In the Best Light
DAYLIGHT Your painting will look different depending on the changing quality of the surrounding light. Natural ambient light will create a nice feel for your painting during daylight hours, as the colors subtly change throughout the day.
AT NIGHT Art galleries use warm or cool-toned spot lighting to accentuate the colors in the painting, and they usually intensify the light on the painting's center of attention. You can imitate this effect in your own home by installing halogen or LED directional spot lighting in the ceiling above your painting. These lights are surprisingly inexpensive to install. An electrician can install them in a few hours. If you wish you can purchase the fixtures and bulbs yourself online.
Use the Right Bulbs
The wrong color bulb can cause your painting to look "muddy." Use cool lighting to illuminate a painting that has predominately cool colors, and use warm lighting on a painting with mostly warm colors.
Many homes are already fitted with recessed ceiling fixtures. These can be adapted to directional spot lighting by a handyman. Even without direct lighting on your painting, your artwork will still look good with nearby incandescent lighting.
