Spirits of the Chakra

Hi, I know you were expecting to see more paintings of water, but to tell you the truth I needed a break from it and decided to have some fun with the paints and a complete change of subject.


This is to represent the 6th Chakra, The Third Eye and above it, at the top of the head is the 7th Chakra called the Crown Chakra.  As the spiritual energies rise through these centers, the person becomes more spiritually aware and can develop psychic and paranormal powers.

I cannot say this happened to me except I had a wonderful time drawing and painting it and the colours made me happy and lifted my soul as did the painting below.......



This Owl represents dream memories of Animal Lives.  It is believed by some people that animal souls are all reincarnating as human beings.    So have taken the liberty of choosing this magificent owl to be part of my past life.  I wonder what animal you would choose.................

Showed my hubby these paintings........they are weird, but very colourful.  Have to say his taste in Art and mine clash a bit, but then it makes life interesting doesn't it..............

Both these paintings for Paint Party Friday were painted in Acrylics and Gel Pens on heavy duty watercolour paper.

Thank you for visiting  me and hope you have a lovely weekend, Hugs Annette x

I like both these illustrations very much-I'd like to learn more about the chakra stuff-it's quite intriguing. I love the idea of animals being reincarnated as humans but unfortunately I think if it was true then humans would be a lot more compassionate to animals than they are for the most part! Your owl is beautiful and I could see why you'd like t to be your spirit animal!

Carola Bartz said...

I like the vibrant color in both of your paintings, Netty. Of course I relate a little bit more to the owl, thinking of all my "owl adventures". If I had to choose an animal, though, it would be a cougar. Where we live there are cougars. So far I've never seen one on my hikees, but I'm pretty sure they have seen me. I have felt it! To me they are magnificent animals, mysterious and lonely and very powerful.

Ayala Art said...

I love the rich contrasting colors, thanks for sharing! Happy PPF

Linda R said...

Ritu Dua said...

Your colorful owl looks so wise, powerful and fearless...love the gaze in his eyes...and yes this change in your work is very pleasant !!

Melisa said...

I find the 3rd eye thing a little creepy because it reminds me of this movie I saw once where the guy had an eye in his forehead and it was pretty freaky. I LOVE the owl, though. Wonderful colors, a nice feathery texture and pretty stars in the background. It's perfect.

Polly Birchall said...

What lovely happy paintings. They made me smile!

Candy C said...

Hello Netty. Love your two paintings. The owl is really lovely against the black background. I also like your first painting of the 6th and 7th Chakra. I know NOTHING about that stuff...but it's fascinating reading about it on your blog. It's a very cool painting and really illustrates what your were blogging about. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment! <3 Candy

Kirstin McCulloch said...

Netty, I love your owl - the details + colours. Just lovely x
