24x36in, Acrylic Painting on Canvas
Mel Bikowski 2017
This painting represents the landscape of Intuition. It can be fluid, shifty, and very clear. Mine tends to be on a visual reef deep under the waters, where I can open new realizations and gifts.
Ocean Energy addresses primitive emotions, magic, intuition, soul work, primal state, dreams, fantasy, fluidity, and nature. I personally feel if I stay aware of these things in my life, I can stand in my highest potential and work through my karmic path in this life.
This painting specifically is a reef that I play in my dreams with my daughter on. Nearly all of my dreams appear on a reef, ocean landscape, or some sort of tropical or arctic place. I am nearly always near water. This reef is the place that I walked and played with my daughter and nearly every night after painting stood on. It felt like a place of home. A landscape of my subconscious- vibrant, happy, and magical.
I named it Floating Reef because I find that within my dreams I always have the feeling of floating. More of the series can be found in the gallery.
To create this original painting, I used golden acrylics and painted them onto a canvas. My first layer is always my daughter and I playing in the paint & then I use my hands to add a primitive personal touch. Many layers and hours were put into this piece of art to honor the space and deeper meaning of the painting.
I have signed, dated, and placed the title on the back of the canvas. It will come ready to hang with gallery stretched wire and will be varnished to protect your investment for years to come. the brand of paint that I use to Golden Acrylic to give quality pigment to the paint.
The original painting was on display in my Art Show, Nameless, An Exploration of Form.
