It all started with the book cover design for the 2015 Edition of "Love EFT" (an excellent book, btw, I highly recommend it!). Set for release on Valentine's Day 2015, this is what it turned out to be:
Silvia's Art Blog
Silvia's Art Blog - Art with Silvia Hartmann
She turned up one night in a vision, unexpected and surprising, so here she is - The White Wolf by Silvia Hartmann, 2015.
"I come in love" - Rose Hand. This symbol hybrid is one of my favourites. It's a wonderful thing on so many levels.
Very romantic, too.
I am very excited to be able to announce the first virtual online exhibition of energy art from the Guild of Energists: Art & Magic group.
Entitled "WE ARE HERE!" this is the very first of many get togethers of modern energy artists worldwide - energy art is finally here and to me, this represents a personal triumph.
Enjoy the exhibition, learn more about energy and art, and unleash the magical energy artist within!
First, there was the City of Gold. Now we have the City of Dreams!
I dreamed about the City of Gold, but in the dream, it was made out of pure information, lights, crystalline. Here is my rendition of the dream.
I am an artist and an energist. I can get very emotional about my art. Of course, I would. But some of these emotions are indicative of injuries in the energy system, and more than that.
Missing events - missing memories - might be far more to blame ...
Creating magical object which have the power to change the world is the purpose of art.
Here are the latest Art Spells, codenamed "The Cupcakes" for November 2014.
An energy magic machine by Silvia Hartmann that is also a beautiful sculpture, and a powerful tool for real energy magicians, but it is also a work of art.
Many hands and minds were at work to create this; it's absolutely unique in all times spent, there will never be another even remotely like it, but most of all, it is very beautiful
Here's the story of The City of Gold.
Xylonite - The material of the future, from the past!
I found a small sheet of original xylonite in a reclamation yard and was quite fascinated by the material. Not sure what I am going to do with it yet, but it has made me curious about and interested in historical plastics.
There are some artists among us who don't not sell art because nobody wants to buy it, but because they don't want to or cannot "let go of their art."
I am one of them - but I think today I have found the solution on how the let a work of art go to another person, on its own journey, as it were.
Amongst my people, it is the custom to give a symbolic snail when people move into a new home. It is a sign of good luck and a happy home, being safe and secure in your home. Traditionally, a hand made house warming snail is preferred; there are many ways to do this, including something as simple as painting a spiral (the symbol of the snail and vice versa) on a flower pot.
Here is my housewarming snail, hand shaped from aluminium and mounted on Baltic amber, given to Stephen Kent for his first home on October 4th, 2014.
The Rainbow Song Bird - from the song that starts, "Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue ..." for granddaughter Amber Kent.
Handover to the young patron of the arts was on June 28th, 2014 :-)
I love the magic of the moment - right time, right place, brought the right camera, saw something, and took some lovely photographs.
The magic of wine ...
At first glance, a jellyfish seems to be not the most impressive of animal totems. But jellyfish really go with the flow ... and there are times in life when there's nothing better than a spot of good old jellyfishing! Here's my jellyfish symbol hybrid on the topic of going with the flow.
A symbol hybrid painting that appeared around 4am without prior warning a couple of nights ago. There is still something going on with "messages in bottles" ... perhaps I will find out soon what it might be ...
As an artistic sort of person, I've had my problems with numbers over the years. If there was one thing I'd say about this painting, it is as follows.
I can paint numbers with ease. But numbers cannot describe my painting. :-)
Blue Trees is a very personal, very important piece for me. I had a major mystical experience when painting that and there's a reason it is in the background of many other images during a period between March and May 2014. For example, Cupcakes and the Magic Bottles.
I know what it is about but I'm not telling.
Bottles are magic ...
There is the message in a bottle, washed up on the shore; there are genies in bottles, there are magic potions and spell bottles ...
Where does art stop and magic begin? Or is it all one and the same ...?
A special symbol hybrid painting 16"x20" for Alex Kent's 33rd birthday.

So, I need business cards for the forthcoming art exhibition. Moo.com was suggested and it seems so reasonable, so for the second time I went there and started the process. For the second time, I lost my will to live. I need "Silvia Specials."
I'll have to make them myself. Immediately, life, love of life and love of art returned and with it, sparkling excitement on this sunny Sunday morning.
Oooh ... what shall we make ...? :-)
Here is a video taken at EMO 2014 - a video documentary following Silvia Hartmann's guided tour through energy art, art solutions and all things art for energists!
