Day 30: 30 Days - 30 Paintings - Sept. 2016

Melding Body and Soul

Thank you for partnering with me on this thirty day painting odyssey. We have traveled to many places and utilized many visual components.  Today, it ends as it began...with the symbol of the Sri Yantra.  As can be seen in many of my paintings throughout the thirty days, the image of the Sri Yantra appears frequently in both obvious placement and more obscurely in the background.  As noted, mantras are geometrical designs based on the principles of sacred geometry and are often used for meditation.  [See Days 1 and Day 2 for more information.]

This piece utilizes a good deal of texture along with transparent pigment.  I see it as the melding between the physical and the spiritual.  To me, the 'spiritual' is represented by the image of the Sri Yantra, while the 'body' is represented by either a woman in a hooded cloak or a whale breaching the sea.  What do you see?
