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.
Visionary Energy Art
What is "Visionary Art"?
Visionary art is any type of art based on a VISION.
What is a "vision"?
Contrary to public opinion, a vision isn't just "seeing stuff that ain't there" but it is a full body, full six sensory experience - exactly like a dream in technicolor where you feel, hear, scent, taste and sense and it is completely real whilst you're there.
Full on visions tend to be extremely information rich and they are also transformational for the person who is having them. It is normal and natural to want to share the vision with others.
Where do visions come from?
They come from the energy mind (previously known as the un- or subconscious mind).
Silvia Hartmann developed a method to access the energy mind, called Project Sanctuary; how to use this method is documented in her book, Infinite Creativity.
In order to create art based on a vision, you do not have to go to art school first. This is a human birthright and does not depend on "craft skills" at all.
Silvia explains a simple method how to turn a vision - or anything, for that matter - into a work of original art even if you have never held a brush in your life here: How To Paint Anything At All!
Here are some examples of visionary art by Silvia Hartmann.

Infinite Creativity by Silvia Hartmann
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.
"It's colouring in, Jim - but not as you know it ..."
Art Solutions makes colouring in more than just a way to switch off your mind for stress relief. This is powerful positive modern energy at play - healing, inspiring, evolutionary, (r)evolutionary ... :-)
Oceans of Energy is coming back - the next edition of the book on EMO Energy in Motion will return to the original title of the first edition.
And we needed a new Ocean Wave. Here it is!
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.
Art poems - instead of drawing the pictures, I wrote the words that say more than a dozen pictures :-) one night.
Enjoy Art Poems - Gifts & Surprises.
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.
She turned up one night in a vision, unexpected and surprising, so here she is - The White Wolf by Silvia Hartmann, 2015.
"I come in love" - Rose Hand. This symbol hybrid is one of my favourites. It's a wonderful thing on so many levels.
Very romantic, too.
Creating magical object which have the power to change the world is the purpose of art.
Here are the latest Art Spells, codenamed "The Cupcakes" for November 2014.
An energy magic machine by Silvia Hartmann that is also a beautiful sculpture, and a powerful tool for real energy magicians, but it is also a work of art.
Many hands and minds were at work to create this; it's absolutely unique in all times spent, there will never be another even remotely like it, but most of all, it is very beautiful
Here's the story of The City of Gold.
A symbol hybrid painting that appeared around 4am without prior warning a couple of nights ago. There is still something going on with "messages in bottles" ... perhaps I will find out soon what it might be ...
Blue Trees is a very personal, very important piece for me. I had a major mystical experience when painting that and there's a reason it is in the background of many other images during a period between March and May 2014. For example, Cupcakes and the Magic Bottles.
I know what it is about but I'm not telling.
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.
Two Dragons painting for a wedding gift. The 2 dragons form a heart.
There is also a poem on the back.
Inspired the Soul Pilots project, book, and stories.
The Lighthouse - one of those things that just turned up and wanted to be done in 2006. As a symbol hybrid, at that.
In 2009, I de-stressed by spending some time on turning The Lighthouse into a vector drawing, using swatches of the original colours, a very time consuming process indeed. Here are both.
September 2009 - The Magic Bird - 12" W x 16" H - 035
English Title Magic Bird. German language hypno-poem The Zaubervogel with this painting.
There is also a designed vector version.
This illustration called "Open Your Mind" was created to accompany the article "Project Sanctuary In A Nutshell."
The physical brain is one thing, but the human mind is another, altogether :-)
