I named this piece "Second Sight" after the term used by my Irish family members when someone can see the unseen.
Story Behind the Painting:
Once upon a time I moved into an apartment with my 5 cats that bordered on a wooded ravine. I was experiencing a major life transition so to help me through it, I immersed myself in gardening and painting. I also did not have my TV hooked up, only a stereo. It really did feel like I took myself off the grid and into a creative and healing retreat.
I noticed soon after moving in that I was not sleeping well and that I could feel strong energy coming out of my bedroom's walk-in closet. I kept waking up, sitting up in bed and staring at it. Then I began to be awakened at night and I would see and hear what seemed to be little children running around laughing. One night they even had red balloons(?)
I slowly began to get the sense that they were not children at all. I had the sense they liked my cats, the garden, paintings and me, but they did not want me to see them. They were checking me out for sure.
It was confirmed one night when for some reason I woke up suddenly. I did not sit up, but my eyes just popped opened. There I saw a female, sitting on the bed by my shoulder and gazing at me as I slept. When she saw that I was awake, but more amazingly, that I could see her!
She looked all at once startled, surprised and alarmed. She immediately rifted or floated backwards without touching the ground so quickly it looked like special effects in a movie into the closet. There had been others in the room with her but all disappeared at the same time.
This is what she looked like; she was the height of a child maybe three feet tall. She had on a gray coat that had a gray furred collar and a gray hat with a grey furred rim, a lot like a Russian military uniform. Her eyes were catlike and her eyebrows very tufted and pronounced. Her ears looked like they may have been pointed. She did not look young, but did not look old either.
She inspired me to paint this, and I re-created her face here. The colors represent transparency and how Nature spirits can blend into the natural world around us. Not easily seen except by those with "Second Sight" or those they choose to allow to see them.
I hope you enjoy her energy in this painting as much as I do. Anyone looking to connect deeper to the Nature realm will enjoy the magical energy that this painting creates around us.
