I have been unhappy with Ars Gratia Artis for a long time - art for art's sake. WTF is that supposed to mean, anyway? It is at best a step stone to a more grown up understanding of art in the greater scheme of things, both intrapersonally as well as interpersonally. At worst, it becomes a crazy labyrinth that causes havoc for the individuals and societies who adopt this position.

"It's colouring in, Jim - but not as you know it ..."
Art Solutions makes colouring in more than just a way to switch off your mind for stress relief. This is powerful positive modern energy at play - healing, inspiring, evolutionary, (r)evolutionary ... :-)
Harvesting from the tree of lights - a man and woman collecting a most precious harvest. Vector art, symbol hybrid based on an original painting from 1996 by Silvia Hartmann.
Oceans of Energy is coming back - the next edition of the book on EMO Energy in Motion will return to the original title of the first edition.
And we needed a new Ocean Wave. Here it is!
Art poems - instead of drawing the pictures, I wrote the words that say more than a dozen pictures :-) one night.
Enjoy Art Poems - Gifts & Surprises.
Now, being an author as well as an energy artist, "The Book" would be some topic for me to "tackle."
"The Book" is ... a doorway, an invitation, a wondrous thing, and full of magic ...
What is Energy Art? - Energetic Imprints VS Energy Art - Art Has An Energetic Existence - How To Create Works Of Energy Art - The Translation Process In Energy Art - Energy Art Without Hierarchy - Honesty In Energy Art - Definition of Energy Art - The Joy Of Energy Art
Butterfly Woman - one of those things that looks ever so simple but actually isn't. A "visitor" or "visionary" design rather than an Art Solutions painting.
"SuperMind" - a classic Art Solutions symbol painting on the topic of the forthcoming transition from Project Sanctuary to the new SuperMind program.
Very soothing ... :-)
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:
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 ...
