Today I am presenting my latest artwork, a colored pencil drawing chronicling my dance with the Divine. This piece was my final project for the God café class I recently completed. The class focused on how we describe and understand the concept of God, drawing from a variety of ancient and contemporary Jewish texts, including the Kabbalah. This online class was a mixture of reading, group discussion, and smaller breakout groups. It was taught by a female Reconstructionist Rabbi Intern, who is simply delightful. The class was wonderful and reminiscent of the Friends’ circles I once attended in my Quaker days.

I decided on a whim to participate in the final project. Deciding to create art was a spontaneous choice on my part. I am so glad I had a reason to indulge my artistic side, something I have not done in quite some time. I won’t describe it yet, except to say it embodies my spiritual journey in a  linear  fashion from birth to the present, moving from left to right.

Please take a good look at this piece and tell me what you make of it. What do you see? What emotions, thoughts, reactions are evoked? I am excited to read your reactions in the comments section below.

Next time I will reveal the details of this drawing so stay tuned!

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful artwork. My first thought was, oh, I love the colors. They remind me of the colors of a spectacular sunset when there is a mixture of purple, orange, yellow, and blue.
    Reading it from left to right, the left side seems dense and intense. The black line seems like a kind of barrier to break through. Afterwards, the spirals look like bubbles coming out of that denser part. Joyful bubbles emerging? Or is it like patterns of whirls in a stream of a river? After that, it seems to become even lighter. The sinus-shaped lines remind me of rays of light.
    I turned the painting 90 degrees so that the dense left side was on the bottom. This looks like a pretty landscape with your light emerging from the soil.
    Hugs,
    Karin

      Thanks Karin for playing long with me here! I went and shifted the paper 90 degrees after reading this comment and it has a whole different look, a lovely landscape with upward movement from dark to light(er). The spirals represent reworking the old while introducing the new, where the horizontal waves indicate a less intense, more routine integration. Where are the sinus shapes lines? Let me know so I can look for the rays of light.

        Thanks for your answer.
        With the sinus shape lines I meant the waves.
        They reminded me of how scientists would depict rays of light.

        Oh, sorry, now I realize this was a translation error by me. In German, it is called ‘sinus’, but in English it is actually ‘sine’. The shape of the wave, as in ‘sine’ or ‘cosine’ functions.

  2. What a wonderful project Linda! Feels like stuff came at you fast and in cycles that opened a lot all at once to pour in…perhaps opening of spiritual experiences at a pace you didn’t know how to fully handle and it tested your sense of security. Two darker periods that really opened a lot to pour in and then release into a new way of experiencing life. Can feel the different layers of the onion you’ve peeled and spiraled you into revisiting things and piecing together stuff…leading you on to a softer and more focused journey where you’ve been integrating and understanding how to balance things and even when you shift onto somewhat different trajectories, they lead you to a similar place of bringing your parts into greater cohesiveness and sense of value for what they are. That’s just some of what I felt energetically upon first look. But that’s just me!

      Wow Tania, you are great at this , lol! I can tell that much of what you gleaned was based on your energetic gifts, rather than figuring out what the drawing meant based on face value. It is a fresh insight or me to see how both dark periods followed an opening to a lighter expansive path. I was not aware until reading your comment how my depression at age 13 was followed by a lightness and expansion of psychic abilities, etc. On an Astrological level, my sun progressed from Scorpio to sag around age 15 so I had known that this triggered a more adventurous, less tortured, friendly, fiery approach to life. Thank you for helping me see something in a new way 🙂

      Clearly you are gifted but I already knew that.

      blessings, Linda ❤

      1. lol! 🙂 well, this is very cool to hear your reflections back. your drawing was the way shower for me indeed. i just allowed your colors and lines to bring through the energetics i felt encoded in them and the story flowed through. i get a sense of things, but can’t always describe it in words, so i’m glad this all spoke to you and i love that we were able to merge our expressions together to open a new insight. couldn’t have done it without you and your vulnerable expression of sharing this intuitive drawing. lots of love and gratitude for sharing all of this ❤

  3. Oh darling I love it! (and I don’t usually call friends darling!) I love the bright colors and different designs. What do I see? The left side starts and travels through chaos and buzzing and ends with a steady, rhythmic heartbeat.

      Thanks for sharing your insights here! I love it! I agree with you that my journey eases as I age, for the most part. The bright colors indicate flow with Spirit but the various shapes and choice of color application vary with my ability to integrate the material.
