Heart Imaginings, Heart 27 by Mary Gow

The buzz today is the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn which also is happening on the shortest day of the year. This morning I painted this watercolor that hardly looks like the first day of Winter. For the shortest day to feel like the first day of spring, instead. I feel the shift. Hold the vision of whatever you dream. The energies are potent like supercharged magnets.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.” -Henry David Thoreau

Heart of the Lotus

Heart 26 by Mary Gow

Heart 26 by Mary Gow

Heart No. 26 has a natural feeling to it. It’s within a plant. It’s growing.

“Be like a lotus. Let the beauty of your heart speak.
Be grateful to the mud, water, air and the light.”
― Amit Ray, author of “Nonviolence: The Transforming Power”

Watch Marie Forleo’s interview of Seth Godin “Show Up and Do the Work, Even If You Don’t Feel Like It” is here:

Seth Godin inspires me in this interview – to the point I decided to post today’s not so perfect Heart No. 26.

By the way, today I found out I could restore my blog to what it looked like a week ago. It worked. What a relief!

Most importantly I am showing up to stay consistent in my desire to post at least once a week after posting 25 hearts in 25 days in a row.

Keep the faith.

Day 19 – Heart in the Flower of Life

Day 19 Heart by Mary Gow

Day 19 Heart by Mary Gow

A small heart stone lies within a flower of life mandala. I remember learning about this sacred geometry symbol and being told to look at it often.

Welcome to Day 19 of my One Hundred Hearts Project. These last three days I’ve been creating hearts using photography to capture a feeling rather than paintings — both methods I then edit with Photoshop to add interest.

Today’s heart reminded me how much fun it is to compose by placing objects on a scanner. It’s the closest I can get right now to making photograms – which are created in the darkroom by placing objects on photo sensitive paper that are then flashed with light under the enlarger. The outcome is a mystery until it is taken through the photo chemical process.

Day 19 Heart was completed in Photoshop using the solarization filter.
