One of the core features of Modern Energy Art is definitely "the breaking down of the old barriers." Normal people are shockingly disconnected from art - from doing art (you need to be brainwash ... ahem, you need to study first for god alone knows how long before you get to call yourself an artist), to owning original art (that's only for rich/crazy people) and so many others beside.

As I was creating the paintings, I was also creating magic objects - magical tools for magical purposes. It was the exact same process which created both the paintings and the artefacts, and I made the comment on the energy art group that if I was exhibiting, I would exhibit both the paintings and the artefacts as they belong together.

Do your hands need energy healing? Do they carry old injuries and memories that transmit today in the strokes of the brush, the pen? If our art hands were fully restored, fully in flow, would our lines be smoother, would we make our mark with more confidence ...? Find out with this energy healing exercise for the artist's hands ...

Yesterday, I finally finished a work of modern energy art that begun five years ago. It's an energy painting called "Project Sanctuary" and was done with the set up of, "Do whatever you will, dear energy mind!"
A collection of favourite photographs. Once in a while, interesting things happen when you do photography. I shall be adding to this as I go along.
I found a wooden box at the dump. It was very well used and contained a few small tubes of old oil paint. Before I even saw it, my spider sense took me to it, and when I touched it, I had a strong sensation of an artist who had loved to paint, especially landscapes and flowers. They must have died because they would have never thrown that box away whilst they had something to say about it.
Here is the story how the mens got into energy painting, energy art and art solutions and their very own energy art exhibition of their very own energy paintings! (And one sculpture!)
Collectively, they call themselves THE ARTMENS :-) - here is their work.

Knowing that the first generation of modern energists would be gathering at the View Hotel in Eastbourne, UK, on November 11th 2016 for the first ever official Guild of Energists conference, I decided to make a special mens as a gift for each delegate.
The mens were made with lots of sparkles and when they were all on the tray together, it occurred to me that they were "The Little Energists" :-)
This could be my golden period or my golden age ... Nothing shines as bright as real 24k gold. No paint comes close. And I love the way it plays with the light.

One of my favourite "Bonus Paintings" was Story Island (B) and it is true, I could not wait to get the space to create a full size symbol hybrid painting - Story Island.
In 2014, I created an art solutions painting called "The End of The Starving Artist." Two years later, and having enjoyed the energy of that abstract energy art painting in my office every day, tremendously, it was time for an evolution. What next, we wondered? And a phrase from the freshly written artists resume became the answer for the new set up, the "title" - "For me, art was essential for survival, precious beyond price, deeply personal and more beloved than I have words to express."
How "finding your style" as an artist can lead to more freedom, rather than less - and some amazing experiences with the Bonus Paintings.
This symbol painting in gold and blue was done - wanted to be done! - at the same time I was working on the Big E and the Big Heart of Gold. It probably caused Story Island (B) quite directly, and therefoe Story Island as well. The case could be made that also "Breaking Through The Barrier Of Gold" is directly related to this symbol painting as well. Mysterious, magical - just what a good original energy art symbol painting should be! :-)

Modern Energy Art Solutions is when the modern energy artist takes charge of their processes of creativity, and uses them to deliberately create a work of art that is the SOLUTION to a problem.
This puts the artist in charge of what they want to experience in the process of creating a work of modern energy art.

When the Association For Meridian Therapies became The Guild of Energists, it needed a new logo.
This is the story of the Big E ...
The Heart of Gold Painting, balancing brother to The Big E, painted for the first Modern Energy Conference in 2016.
Yes, it's the Pikachu symbol hybrid painting - a birthday gift for Stephen Kent :-)

Being Too Literal?
"You are too literal!" is a favourite put you down among arty folk. It is a variant on the "Fear of the Obvious" which I have written about and ranted over for many years now.
Essentially, art students and literary students are entrained to become blind to the obvious, and the literal, by being punished for being obvious and literal.
This leads to a mental movement that becomes quite literally (!) the psycho-path.

On a cool October night, I was drinking red wine and there were some people about who were interested in energy art, but didn't know much or anything about it.
Here is a truly multi-dimensional project for modern energy artists - The Bowl of Blessings. Here, we bring together art and magic, energy and intention, creativity and craft to end up with a single "installation" which serves as a totem in its own right, but can be used for all manner of magical purposes just as perfectly as it can sit by itself on a plinth in an art exhibition. Oh, and of course, you can play with it. Age range - 3 to 300. Awesome. x
