Allowing the flow of energy in art.

Everything is flowing — going somewhere, animals and so-called lifeless rocks as well as water. Thus the snow flows fast or slow in grand beauty-making glaciers and avalanches; the air in majestic floods carrying minerals, plant leaves, seeds, spores, with streams of music and fragrance; water streams carrying rocks… While the stars go streaming through space pulsed on and on forever like blood…in Nature’s warm heart.
– My First Summer in the Sierra (1911) chapter 10. – John Muir

Singing Stones

Each of my paintings take on a life force of their own and tend to flow in the direction that they want…

While I was working on this painting, it became clear that the rocks were going in a direction of their own. Some find this image creepy and it could be the that the very stillness is jarring to our busy mindset.

When we think of sacred spaces, temples, churches and stone circles like Stonehenge come to mind. Man made and amplifying the raw energy of a particular area.

All life forms are made up of the same minerals found in the rocks and stones of the earth. This is one of those places where the rocks sing.

We can be affected by an area and some places cause discomfort as they alter our mood. Seek places that make you feel good and energised whenever possible.
