"Tanya" by Cheryl Irwin
I was extremely blessed the other day when I recieved the most wonderful artwork from one one my art friends. This painting was part of a pay it forward "project" that I got involved with on Facebook.
The artwork above was created specifically for me by the very talented Cheryl Irwin, which is part of her new "Astonishing Light Project". I love everything about this piece, somehow Cheryl has managed to capture me in this work without even having met me.
About the project:
"My art is my spiritual journey in many ways, as I am always seeking the gentle sweet balance of the moment, as I paint. I am painting spirit beings/goddesses/angels in a totally connected way for people who ask me. The energy feels so lovely to me and I want to share it, because we are all on a path to re-discover "the astonishing light" of our own beings. I will do a painting (oil on canvas, ready to hang) for anyone who asks me and I will ship it anywhere in the world. I am using the Buddhist system of "dana" as a model for my payment system, which matches my total belief that the universe will take care of me. You can ask me for a painting, and what I want in return is a note or email from you after you get it briefly telling me your thoughts about it – because I want the satisfaction of knowing my art has "connected" with you. Secondly I expect some monetary reward for the time and effort I put into it. I'll have a paypal button on my website and addresses etc. The amount is totally up to you and I am truly unattached to the specifics. My intention is to create a flow, of my energy out in the form of my artwork and energy back to me in the form of connections with people and money enough to carry on with this project."
