In art never say what what you created let the viewer tell you what they see.
lesson learned here. This series was created out of a feeling of being trapped. I created this abstract series depicting figure in bottles, thinking I saw them as being all BOTTLE UP. My viewers saw figures in yoga poses, others saw figures in vessels like the Greek art.My motto ask what they see before I explain my muse.

Having fun with friends creating lasting images in time by making lifecast. Susan is a proud owner of her bust which she will paint at a later time. I love having my friends and their in my studio to create art.
We mediatate before starting our creative journey,we let the universe guide our hands giggling and oo and awes abound.
Thats fun with friends.

I create unique wall sculptures for the home decor. My lifecasts are much like an animal trophy to be admired by the beauty of the living form.
My home is adorned with lifecasts of friends and family and myself.
I create tailored made lifecasts on commission. I created one for a sixty two year old female for her husband who collects rose patterned china.
Shown here are rose lifecast and untitled copper patina.

MY intuitive mind and artistic vision converge into one during a PSYCHIC reading. The conversion begins when pen and paper meet while looking upon the clients CROWN CHAKRA.
With pen in hand it seemly floats upon the paper surface. I Begin to scribble in a circular motion which brings forth vague images. My consciousness goes into a light trance where the SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA opens allowing my psychic abilities to pick up the vibration of my client, through the imaging that is appearing on paper. I focus on the images which appear such as , landscapes, architecture, living beings, and spirit beings etc... to which will be the bases of the reading of past present and future.
Durning such reading I may recieve creative ideas which I put upon a seperate sheet of paper for refrence that I may create at a later time. Thus the intuitive and creative mind merge to be one.
How this relates to all my ABSTRACT ART is that while creating my mind goes into a light trance allowing the spirit force to spontaneously bring images onto the blank support. I add detail to bring forth the imagery such as landscapes and spirit beings and animal beings.
Here are a few of my lastest ARTWORKS which convey the blending of ART AND THE psychic eye.

all those that are following my blog and to those that are collectors of my works.
I have sad news you missed out on buying MEDICINE MAN it sold over the weekend with five other works at THE VENUE GALLERY .
My works are ENCAUSTIC ABSTRACTS.
My abstract ART is imagery in which I let flow my inner most feelings, from, DEPRESSION,SADDNESS and HAPPINESS. I find ENCAUSTIC the MELTING OF pigmented BEES WAX to be therapeutic in the action of heating to the point of melting. I dripple and drop the melted ENCAUSTIC across the HARDBOARD surface and maniputate by tilting and and blowing hot air directly onto the MELTED WAX. This allows the blend of pigments and the formation of texture to the piece. When I am satisied with the IMAGERY I will bring out a detail by scratching or the use of a PAINTBRUSH and melted ENCAUSTIC to bring it to the foreground. I then POLISH the ARTWORK with a soft cloth to HIGH SHINE. ENCAUSTIC DO NOT HAVE TO BE DISPLAYED UNDER GLASS, polish them from time to time. NEVER LEAVE AN ENCAUSTIC IN A HOT CAR OR IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT.

My art studio is in my second kitchen downstairs where I am cooking up colorful delights of multi colored encaustic paintings. Melting titling and blowing my way into creation, peeling and scraping to reveal detail in my encaustic painting's.
Not only is it fun for me to create but to watch my encaustic paints meld into each other becoming one is a mini film to my eyes.
The air is heavy with scent of melted wax as I am lost in the process of creating an art work for my home or exhibit.
I have tired many mediums to create with, watercolor,pastels and acrylics. Once I tried encaustic wax I was hooked by it's sensual flow of movement upon hardbboard.
I like the sheen it has once it is buffed, I like that it does not have to be displayed under class, I like that it as been around for 2000 years that it can with stand time.
I know never to leave a painting in full sunlight, as one should never do with any art work. I KNOW NEVER TO LEAVE AN ENCAUSTIC ART WORK IN A HOT CAR,or any art work in a car.A flood can not harm an encaustic painting, which it can for any other medium.
The real truth for the love of encaustic I like to cook, what a better way to paint to use my stove, hot plate, electric skillet,and my iron. Now thats HOT ART

- Johnnie Belinda creating unique art works out of melted pigmented bees wax. My unique encuastic abstracts I use a technique of melting, tilting, and swirling that creates the vivid abstracts of spirit beings and florals. I have no thought to what may appear on the hardboard surface. Allowing a force not of my own to guide my hand into creating exquisite one of a kind abstracts. Not only do I create abstracts in encaustic, I also use acrylics and watercolors. I am self taught. I'm constantly drawing on things, from scraps of paper to canvas, to big pieces or bed sheets. I truly must create the images my mind sees.
