Blessed Virign Mary

Blessed Virgin Mary

I am currently re-working the Saints into digital paintings as I love the way how they glow and how the watercolour drawings can be shine when transported into that new medium.

Again I connected with her energies for painting this picture. I first thought of the immaculate hear - when she said to me "ehm ... I don't wish that heart on my painting, dear love" ... so I dropped it again. Then I thought about a landscape in the background but again she interfered and just wished for herself and the energy surrounding her ... and here we go.

Mary - the blessed one.

Saint Hildegard of Bingen

Today I have finished a new version of my Hildegard of Bingen drawing I did in 2010 with watercolour pencils. I liked part of it but was never really happy as I wanted to transport more into the here than I could - I didn't know how to ... 

Some months ago I had a vision of a new drawing - better said an alteration to the existing one. Notes were part of it ... now I am experimenting with Corel Painter 12 (trial version) at the moment and could finally realize my vision & here we are:

Hildegard of Bingen
Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 17 September 1179), also known as Blessed Hildegard, Saint Hildegard, and Sybil of the Rhine, was a German abbess, author, counselor, linguist, naturalist, scientist, philosopher, physician, herbalist, poet, channeller, visionary, composer, and polymath.

The Fire Fairy

Fire Fairy

The first time the fire fairy revealed herself to me was around Pentecost. But I first finished the Ocean Water Fairy drawing and then started with this one here. The following poem did come as well while being connected with the energy of the fire fairy.

The Words of a Fire Fairy

I'll spark your life and I'll be your flame.
I am no angel, I have no name - as my names are many
as sparks of the flame.
Call me a devil, a fairy is nice.
Call me no mery ... I hate the disguise.

I am open, I am true ... I am no demon,
I am but true.

I am the drum of Afirca's heart,
I am the sun that even shines in the dark.

I am the hatred,
the power, the flame ...

I am the glory,
the selfish, the game ...

I am the huntress,
the derwish, the sun ...

I am but many ... so call me no name.

I can be with you, whenever you like
beware as my helping can more be like a spike
I will be treating 'ya the way 'ya deserve
I can be tender and gentle and brave
and I can be cruel & forgiving no mistake.

Choose the way you want me to be,
as I am but many - and many is me.

Eleanor of Aquitaine

I finished the sketch for this drawing already a while ago and somehow avoided it then for a long time. Eleanor is quite demanding and I feared my work could possibly not be good enough.
I drew her yesterday and the day before yesterday and have to admit that I am quite pleased, I just have to take a better photo of it.

A Heavenly Prince

This is my beloved Amadar, an angel from Machon, the 5th Heaven.
His energy is light blue and he is an angel of love, understanding and healing.
His wings sparkle like snow in the sunlight. ♥
One of his symbols is the Fleur de Lis.

This was another try with the Corel Painter 12 trial version.

The pose and part of the armour was inspired by Lancelot of the King Arthur movie:

Ocean Water Fairy

Ocean Water Fairy

That fairy revealed herself to me some weeks ago and it took me a while to draw her as it was very draining.

The Woodland Fairy

A fairy came to visit me these days and left me a song and I couldn't do anything else than just draw her.

Woodland Fairy

And this is the song / poem she left me:

Hear the drums, hear the drums, hear the drums of midnight.
I will dance, I will dance, I will dance till midsummer's night.

My wings unfold, I stretch my limbs,
I will dance, till the summer begins.

My leaves they bow,
My leaves they shake,
until the blossoms are all awake.

I will dance, I will dance, I will dance till morning comes.

My wings unfold, I stretch my limbs,
I will dance, till the summer begins.

Bees and hoppers are all my friends,
till death will part us and the summer ends.

Hear the drums, hear the drums, hear the drums of midnight.
I will dance, I will dance, I will dance till midsummer's night.
