Painting & Poetry

To be completely honest, its been rough lately.  I have gotten to another layer of grief around the ending of my romantic relationship.  We were in the denial stage for the past few weeks and tried on the “lets stay friends” roles.  Nothing changed.  Of course, it didn’t.  We needed these past few weeks to realize that just because two people love and even like each other it doesn’t mean they are meant to be together.  That is what is so hard about this ending.  Neither one of us are assholes.  It would be so much easier if we were.  This has been the hardest ending I’ve ever had because of that reason.  There is nothing to be angry at him for.  I mean, I could find things if I really wanted to, and I have tried, but its not very honest in the long run.

I was talking to a friend last night and telling her how lost I am now.  I’ve always known who I wanted to be when I grow up.  The past 20 some years I’ve even lived some of that dream.  Now, I just don’t know. . . So, today, I did what I do when I just don’t know.  I wrote a poem and I painted.  The poem came from a place of deep sorrow and I wanted the painting to reflect the same.  That’s the beautiful thing about painting.  It becomes its own thing.  Painting comes from the heart and soul and knows more than the mind.  The wisdom of the painting tells me from deep grief a new life is formed, if we choose it.  I hope to have the courage to do so.

 

 

The QuickeningThe Keening

Voices,
keening on the wind.
Echoing.
Grief in my heart.
Breath.
Held in.
Body,
curled tight.
Not.
Understanding.

One day I decided to paint.  I have no formal training yet haven’t let that stop me.  When I paint from my mind there is a confusing mess ending up on the canvas.  When I paint from my heart . . .  I paint what Guidance speaks through me.

Here are some of the Soul Colors Portraits I have painted for clients over the past year.  If you feel called to commission one for yourself you can find out more here.

 

 

Heaven’s Plea

My friend Michelle Kaye is a beautiful musician and composer.  She recently gifted me with one of the pieces of music she created called Heaven’s Plea.  This piece of music was created during the time she was living and healing from cancer.

I asked her if I could paint her something while listening to her music and she agreed.  This is the result.

Soul Colors Portrait: Creative Spirit

painting by Della McGee
painting by Della McGee

You will notice two symbols within your painting.  One is the cross and the other the spiral.  The cross is letting you know that you are at a cross roads in your life right now.  You are done being a child and it is time to step into your power as woman.  The spiral represents the path to power.  How you find your personal power is by going into the center of your being and listening to your intuition.  The flower in this painting is your intuition.  It is blooming, letting you know that it is always “open” for you.  

You have a lot of creative energy that desires to be expressed.  You have many different outlets to choose from whether that be the arts, music or gardening.  Creative expression will always be a healthy outlet for you if you allow it to be so.  Write, paint, act or simply howl at the moon.  Let that creativity be your guide to a balanced life.

Gentle Spirit

Sumya
painting by Della McGee

Gentle Spirit your soul calls your name.  Gentleness is your strength.  Sweetness, joy.  Love and Compassion are your hallmarks.  Peace is your breath.  Look deeply into your soul and call forth your deepest longings.  The truth is within you.  Look into your eyes and “see” your authentic being.  Remember this:  no one can tell you who you are.  You are the architect of your life.  Through love and compassion you will be guided.  Fear will block you if you give it power.  Remember, to find your way . . . breathe.

Queen Of The Fairies

Scan 24
painting by Della McGee

When you look at yourself in the mirror what do you see?  Do you see your majesty?  Do you see your grace?  Do you see your power?  Do you see a leader?  These are all qualities you have dwelling within you.  You can see the image in your portrait has her wings spread wide open.  She does this to embrace all of life.  You may notice that even though she is feminine she also has masculine qualities as well.  You will need this balance of masculine (active) and feminine (receptive) to fully step into your power.  Do not be afraid to be assertive with your dreams.  The queen’s face has an expression that could be misconstrued as aggression.  Sometime we need to “put on our game face” to push ourselves to our destiny.  If only to convince ourselves that we have the strength to carry on.
