A Painting A Day: Day 25, July 28th 2012

 Sandalwood and the Golden Cat Inside
5.5" x 5.5" watercolor on paper

Sandalwood is curious to see what you are doing. He's so curious that he sits on what you are doing and help you do it. For example, he attempted to paint by dipping his paws in the violet watercolor and sauntered across the table. "You're going to get me in trouble!" I yell, chasing him towards the kitchen with a wet paper towel in hand. I pick up his paw as if he were a horse with a stone in its hoof. Sandalwood doesn't like this one bit. But five minutes later he's in my face purring again. I thought my cat Stormy was a pesky one but Sandalwood takes the cake. Here he is with a Golden Cat inside of him.

 The I Am Presence

My friend Angie Corsini turned me onto a website called the Radiant Rose Academy, where they talk about the Violet Flame, the I Am Presence, Ascended Masters and all that type of stuff. Honestly, I haven't quite grasped it yet and my feet are firmly stuck in the traditional world history that we are taught in school. Then again, there are many things that happen "by coincidence" and many things left unexplained in my own and in other people's lives. Perhaps one day I will have a blinding revelation and all that I have forgotten will come back to me. Until then, I hope to increase my personal discipline in various ways. This project is a good start. This image is a take on the I Am Presence picture on the aforementioned website. The I Am Presence is also known as the God Self, Higher Self or Super Conscious. The person below transmutes their karma through use of the Violet Flame. The face is not known to me yet but pops up frequently in my work.

 What I Conceive, I Can Achieve,
What I Feel, I Can Make Real

Listening to recordings or "courses" on the Radiant Rose Academy website. These are my notes. What a change from note-taking in 6th grade! Some sacred Hindu-derived symbols from a rare book of Hindu and Tantric art I purchased this afternoon. Many of the symbols and colors were nearly identical with my own. With a pesky cat around, I don't dare risk opening the book with a watercolor palette and glass of water on the table, but perhaps soon I will begin my studies.
