Ammonites ... beautiful spirals ... magic spirals ... Here are Silvia's AmmoniteS.

Imagine you are lost in a desert, it is insanely hot and dry and you can feel yourself dying with every step you take.
You crest a dune, and there lies a cupula ... or what appears to be a cupula.
Now, being an author as well as an energy artist, "The Book" would be some topic for me to "tackle."
"The Book" is ... a doorway, an invitation, a wondrous thing, and full of magic ...
Butterfly Woman - one of those things that looks ever so simple but actually isn't. A "visitor" or "visionary" design rather than an Art Solutions painting.
"SuperMind" - a classic Art Solutions symbol painting on the topic of the forthcoming transition from Project Sanctuary to the new SuperMind program.
Very soothing ... :-)
A "Mona Lisa" is a painting of a person who doesn't exist in the Hard.
They may exist on other levels however :-)
Here are three Dragon Lords, Rix, Chay and DeVille who might not be hard as such but they certainly are - here.
Some time ago, I sent someone a The Gift and it was a Seahorse. First time that I can recall I had any dealings with this particular creature or metaphor, as the case may be ...
Here is my seahorse drawing, the symbol hybrid, and a seahorse vector version, plus a couple of cute animated seahorses and a seahorse to print out for coloring in.
A commission for an August birthday - Leo The Lion.
Inspired by Taurus, my second Star Sign Symbol Hypbrid painting.
One of the most fascinating things I've learned about art is that art doesn't get better when the artist gets older. Any inspired work of art can't be bettered; it's perfect as it is and can't be improved upon. It's not a curve from being useless to getting good then great; real art doesn't work that way.
Which has many repercussions across time and space for the development of the artist.
Interesting challenge - to illustrate the concept of isolation.
I took it a bit further to have the answer to how to get out of isolation and/or feeling isolated in the little cartoon as well. See what you think ...
I needed an illustration for an article about The Sacred Turtle and looked around for a free vector graphic. As usual, I couldn't find one. So I made my own tortoise vector to turn into a digital image for the illustration, and as it was actually a lot more tricky than I thought it was, decided to share my tortoise vector with others who are in need of such a thing ...
You can see both the links to the free tortoise vector images in .ai and .xar and my "Sacred Turtle" design here.
The Messenger is one of my favourite designs of all time.
His message of "Your are not who you think you are." is one of those things, if you do personal development, that if you can get your head around it, changes many things, possibly even everything, and opens doors that would otherwise have remained not just locked but even, entirely invisible.
The mystical Silver City is a metaphor, a major locus and of course, it is Pertineri (pronounced purtenayree).
Pertineri made its first official appearance in In Serein (2002) and was then enthusiastically adopted by Project Sanctuary players all around the world, as it is such a cool and useful place, hard to beat, really :-)
Here is the "Silver City" design for the spirit of Pertineri, 2010.
A cover design for a real magic book is a challenge. Because a magic book is not just about the words inside, but a magic book is a magical *object* in its own right - a tool for magic, an energy generater, an imprinter and also an MEMEM, to be used in actual magic.
So apart from the challenge of, "Does it look right?" this kind of structural design also needs to feel right, and "magic right" for the want of a better word.
Sometimes I find geometrical mandala type designs very soothing.
And what could be more soothing than the magical energy flow in a pyramid?
Asked to create an image to represent the human energy body, I thought that's a challenge.
You have to be very careful when you're illustrating things that cannot be seen; you are making a visual metaphor and if that's wrong, people can get the wrong end of the stick so easily ...
Do you remember the mysterious black stones from 2001 A Space Odyssey?
Whilst doing some illustrations for http://genius23.com they came to mind ... :-)
Sometimes, artists just want to have fun.
So it is Easter ... one has to decorate an egg. What kind of egg? A space egg!
What should I put on it? Genius Symbols, of course!
Now all you have to do is wonder what's inside ...
I was looking at a background image at the same time as wondering about a The Gift for a good friend, and I "saw an angel in the clouds".
Lucky Hans, or Hans Im Glück as the Germans say, is an archetype that relates to the Fool in the Tarot card.
Lucky Hans strides out with a bundle on his stick, to find his fortune, make his luck, free from all worry, fear and responsibility, enjoying life to the full.
I was looking for the very iconic image of Lucky Hans this morning and couldn't find anything I liked so I decided to make my own Hans im Glück picture instead.
There has been a lot of talk about manifesting in the hard recently and in general, the idea of something that originates in one dimension, taking that transformational trip to manifest in an other.
Either way, here we have a visitor from a light dimension, coming to a neighbourhood near you - there's a starman waiting in the sky ...
From mundane design to word art - poem to paper, and eventually, a meditation on transience.
Art doesn't let itself be confined into arbitrary categories. I think today was a major reminder of that ...
