updating the For Sale page

hi there my friends!  hope your light is still shining bright, or at least still shining, and that you are giving yourself the care you deserve as the wonderful human you are.   because you rock!

I was messaged the other day an inquiry about one of my mini paintings listed for sale.  yay for inquiries!  that gave me a happy, but also made me look at my For Sale page and notice I have not updated it in a very long time.  time to get to work on that bit, I suppose.

so, in order for me to make it easier on my mind while I re-learn the revamped bits on blogger and piece the For Sale page together, I think I will add the paintings right here first so when I take breaks while working on it I won't get too lost.  I remember it being difficult last time I worked that page, so I think the Jenny brain needs a cheat sheet for this.

this is the first step to a re-worked For Sale area, but it's a step in the right direction.

I'm trying to put the paintings up in groups that make sense, so you might see multiples of one subject.   "just keep scrolling, just keep scrolling".  they are numbered here (29 paintings in this post!) just for myself on this post and not for any communication about said paintings.  

these are all original mini paintings of varying sizes, full of texture and movement and perfect for an alter or to sit upon a table or in among the books on your shelves.  they will bring a bit of joy and some of them come with a message if you choose to listen.

"Crowning Herself", close to completion

She has Gone. Through. It. and this is her story of triumph!  

Crowning Herself is a tribute to the struggles in life that beat her to her core.  she must decide to fight her way to the top, or lose the battle.  she has fought her demons for so long, and continues to on a daily basis, but knows the fight is worth it in the end.  she is weary as she dons her crown, but knows she is worthy of it, as well as her kingdom, at the end of her climb.

Crowning herself, 

she let go of the darkness of her past. 

The guilt, the shame, the sadness of it all. 

She let it all go and, 

walking through the mind-chatter, 

entered her Kingdom of Light

 


this painting has lots of gold!


the coming together of my paintings always astounds me.  my muse is strong with her urgings, and the symbolism she tells me to include always rings true.  I try really hard to let each painting come naturally, to not force anything.  if the muse brings something up, I must respect that.  if I get an urge to paint in a specific color, I do it, though I might need to find a way to make it work (like the color of the ladder mixing with the hair... each needed to be seen, so I found a way).  the eyes being so emotive of pain would not have been my choice, but she wanted to speak of it, so I let it be.  

this painting includes mushrooms, which I only found a few references to for symbolism, but they pertain to enlightenment, Kundalini and the Crown Chakra, which I found entertaining, to put it mildly, since the crown is the subject matter of this painting.  I then looked up the actual meaning of Kundalini (the site explains it wonderfully), as I know the term but I'm not knowledgable enough to explain it.  they also speak of snake symbolism with kundalini, and thats interesting because her hair is coiled and snake-like!  the website states "kundalini awakening offers a profound opportunity for those called to follow a spiritual path", and I have a stairway/path, leading to a castle.  it also speaks of an opening of heart, and I have an open heart by her throat chakra.


the only thing I added due to my research after the fact was the white stone in the crown to symbolize the Crown Chakra.  other than that, all the symbolism came to me from the muse as I sketched and worked on this painting.


she still has a few finishing touches to go, but I'm excited to see her up in my shops.  I will be posting to show you all the goodies as soon as that task is complete.

edit;

here she is, in all her glory and in my society6 shop as a framed print



until later,

Jenny
