Earth Angels – A Wall Sculpture for the Planet





This is the first in a series of wall sculptures I plan on doing over the next month.  This is  an experiment where I’m incorporating my energy art prints into dimensional art.  I actually had a different one in mind for the first piece, but I’ve been hearing so much about volcanoes, tornadoes, fires, and crazy wild storms that I decided to do an Earth Angel protection piece.
I’ll be going back to my usual “in your face” color schemes next, but this one is about the planet, and the planet makes me think of greens and earthtones.  The energy art print I used in this piece is called “Mother Earth

(Whoa, do you think I used enough links? lol)
I got a wild hair the other day and decided to google  “Primal Painter”.   There were quite a few strange sites where I got mentioned, many seemed like they were overseas.  Did you know that your comments on blogs show up in google searches?  Tweets?  Wow,  I don’t know about this internet stuff,  I’m feeling kind of exposed.  

How weird is this?  This website has my words from a listing on Etsy  attached to one of their own images.  They changed a few of the words (which I highlighted) so it wasn’t an exact knockoff.   They even put some of my  images (excuse me, effigies)  on this page, too, without any links to me or my shop.   I think they pulled them off my wordpress blog. 

One of those prints hasn’t even been listed.  I feel a little violated I have to admit.  I guess I could change my attitude to “Wow, they like me, they really like me!”  I dunno, it’s just weird.  I emailed the owner of the website but got no response of course.  Since then, the print of the girl has been taken down and there are three of “The Violet Flame”, so I don’t know what the heck is going on.   All I know is “Ewwwwwwwwwww”!!

I think maybe I need  to at least protect my images.  I don’t know if there’s anything that can be done about words, especially when they change a few here and there.  I guess I need to put a watermark on my images so they aren’t so easy to steal.  I don’t know how to do that, so I guess I’ll add that to my overwhelmingly long list of computer related chores.  

Here’s the questionable website.  The image my words were attached to were of some statues in Japan.

“Healing Energy” by Primal Painter 
Abstract Healing Energy Art Photography Print
I created this abstract energy art print in March 2011  in response to the disaster in Japan.
This abstract art print is inspired by my wall sculpture entitled “Clearing the Chaos“.    Through a very intuitive procedure that reflects a distinct flow of energy, I created this piece of abstract art.
From beginning to end, I focalized on infusing the effigy with Reiki healing energy  in the form of colors, light and patterns. I believe that anyone could gain from the energy of this print.  Those who are sensible to energy might feel it in the form of vibrations, tingling, or plainly a lift in mood or sentiment of well being.
____________________________________________________________________
Dimensions: 8″ x 10″, could be hung vertically or horizontally. The effigy extends all the way to the edges of the paper
Colors: Red Violet, Reds, Pinks, Oranges, Yellows, some Purple, some Blues
Paper: Kodak Professional Endura Metallic Paper
I’ll sign, date, and title it on the back.
The metallic paper it’s printed on is very  glossy, pearlescent, and has a  shimmery glow with deep vibrant colors. I had it printed at a professional photo lab.
I plan on incorporating these new  energy art prints into three dimensional wall sculptures, original paintings and also into pendants, brooches, mini wall hangings and magnets.
To see other modern abstract art, energy art, wall sculptures and pendants, go to my Etsy Shop or my Artfire Studio.

And how strange that these images are under a description for candle sconces!  If that’s not bad enough, underneath my photos were bad reviews…..of candle sconces!!!! Gah!!

I’m going to ignore it all for a while.  Once again, the computer seems, I don’t know, Eeevilllll!  The studio is a much nicer place!
Have a super fun weekend!

Psychedelic Startburst” A Wall Sculpture by Primal Painter

I really love purple, I just can’t help it!  I seem to include purple in practically everything I do.  Last year, I thought I would paint the trim, the shutters and the porch of the house in some nice grown up colors.  I did the railing on the porch with sage and cream which looked pretty and tasteful on this really nice house I saw in town, so I thought it  might work for me.

When I was finished, I felt so……ugh.  For the first couple of days, I looked at these colors with skepticism every time I went outside, but by the third day I noticed that I was averting my eyes whenever I walked up the porch steps.   Well, that’s not a good sign!  By the fourth day, when I would approach my “tastefully” painted porch railings, I’d start dragging my feet on the ground like they weighed 1,000 pounds and would actually moan and groan and throw my hands in the air.  These are not good signs!

So I hightailed it to the paint store, got a gorgeous purple, dark teal, and cerulean blue and proceeded to paint everything as bright as possible.   Oh yeah, that’s better!!  My friends think I need a painting intervention, but even they agree that sage and cream just aren’t me.   I’m sure my neighbors raised some eyebrows, but I’m used to that by now, as a matter of fact, sometimes I do things just to raise those eyebrows!

I painted my kitchen in some wild oranges and reds, which left some of my visitors speechless, (my kitchen glows when the light shines through the windows) but thought, well I’ll paint my dining room in some neutral normal color to balance it out.  I don’t even know how it happened exactly, but somehow, I ended up with a fuschia, maroon, orange and red pyramid on my wall. Seriously, I don’t even know how it happened, I went into a color trance of some kind….

I might as well face it, me and neutral tasteful colors just don’t go together.  I’m starting to become suspicious that I may never grow up.  Oh well, colors that make me go “Wheee!” are better than colors that make me go “ughhhhh” so to all those people with their raised eyebrows…….Take That!!!

Maybe I’ll put up some pictures after I tackle spring cleaning.  Oh noooooo, spring cleeaaanning!!!!!!

I won’t think about that right now.

Have a great day!
