My angel connections / blog and my art / art blog are inspiring one another. Three years ago I dreamed a color combo of lime green surrounded by white, surrounded by teal. I wasn't painting abstracts, so I created a still life.

When I began abstracts, something that emerged after simplifying my landscapes, I decided I should paint the original dream colors. I entitled the painting Inspired Dream posted below. It was exhilarating to paint! I started using the palette knife, painting wildly and energetically. Was so much fun! I was in the ZONE. Clearly a part of me or my angelic/light being guides knew I would one day be painting abstracts.

So I asked my angels for artistic inspiration to continue this series I jokingly refer to as "Rothko on steroids." I dreamed this new color combo (top image), brilliant teal surrounded by orange that darkened to a deep taupe and then dark brown around the edges. Emerald green is the color of archangel Raphael who is known as a healer, and bronze is the color of archangel Gabriel, known for inspiring artists. Woohoo. LOVE being in sync with the universe.

It's fun to see your new direction with the abstracts... and the correlation to your more traditional approach. It's cool that the two feed off of one another! Love it!
