Brrrr! It is freezing outside…good day to paint…Once again I have been inspired by my blogging friend Barry Combs. Barry did a workshop and taught his students a very practical approach to create abstract paintings. 237 more words
There are times an artist must search far and wide for inspiration. Then there are times when opportunities literally fall into your lap. I have four grandchildren, one great grandchild, two grand cats and four grand dogs. 169 more words
Gratitude Sculpture Sketch, watercolor on paper, 12 by 14 in. Emilia Kallock 2918. I would like to do a sculpture of 12 ft hands emerging from the ground symbolizing my gratitude to the earth. Also, Sri Chinmoy’s quote inspired me : Every morning try to greet God with only one thing: an ever-increasing gratitude-gift.
Awareness Portrait, acrylic on paper, 10 by 10 in. Emilia Kallock 2018. This portrait illustrates how my thought process works when I am conscious of which thoughts I want to expand. I liken it to a frenzy of shooting stars, some of which I will select to expand upon- represented by the two large eye stars. This phenomenon arises from the many mindfulness practices I’ve studied as if late, including works by Sri Chinmoy, Megan Sillito, and Access Consciousnesses methodology among others.
Wind, watercolor on paper, 8 by 10 in. Emilia Kallock 2018. How does one illustrate wind? With the effects it has on the things it touches? I’m interested in drawing it because it’s like trying to portray emotions. They’re invisible, but the tangible effects show up in the material world.
Gratitude Hands, watercolor and watercolor pencil on paper, 7 by 8 in. Emilia Kallock, 2018. I’ve found when one begins the day (or process of whatever) with a heart centered feeling of gratitude, it sets the stage for a much more efficient, productive and expansive possibility, in whatever you seek out to accomplish. In other words, it sets the stage. I show this in this drawing with the color floats of possibility drifting out to their potentiality.
Erotic Sketch; Fingers on Both Lips, pen and pastel on paper, 6 by 8 in. Emilia Kallock 2018. I believe there is a correlation between treating the earth with delicacy and passion as people are capable to doing to each other. Here, I’ve reconstructed/expanded this moment. It also satisfyingly serves as a sacred souvenier. Full drawing can be seen in the Eros section of my website- password Pompeii.
Two Hands Emerging from the Ground, watercolor pencil and watercolor on paper, 8 by 9 in. Emilia Kallock 2018. I expanded more on the hands-emerging-from-earth image for a sculpture, but this time with two left hands, signifying those of a couple working together reaching out, with gratitude and curiosity. Sri Chinmoy’s quote comes to mind again: Every morning try to greet God with only one thing: an ever-increasing gratitude-gift.

Last night’s project did inspire me to see what kind of a color gamut I’d be able to produce with gouache (opaque watercolor). I also took note of the fact that colors mixed using the same pigments tend to harmonize. 780 more words
