In the magic hour at 3am the other day I made "Future Flowers," a piece of digital energy art. I kept thinking that I wanted to animate it ...

In 2006, I created an hour long album of music called Altar Ego to help me write a novel, Vampire Solstice. I thought to make some visualisations for them to put them on Youtube. Here are the results.
Sometimes in art, magic or life, things just come along. They turn up. They are important. We don't know why. We just go with it. This one is such a one ...
A collection of colourful creatures with energy and messages all of their own - stimulating the imagination, flowing free ... :-) Silvia Hartmann, October 2017
Energy remedies, magic energy potions, energy anti-venom, positive energy - here are the 7 Energy Remedies for energy body problems.
Use the 7 Energy Remedies game for healing and evolution by yourself, as often as you like, or play with friends, family and paying clients.
Art + Energy = MAGIC.
One of the super metaphors, The Key turned up at a very auspicious time. The original design featured a Borromean Circle but I chose to do the real world circles in the end. Serious energy art/energy magic.
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 ...
