It's been a busy seven days. I met with an editing consultant last week, the morning after I attended an artist talk about sketch books, journaling and book making. I realize now that I want to create an art book featuring my paintings (rather than writing the story that led me into the art world). I have already used apple software to design books and I am currently exploring blurb. The hardest part of this project will be filtering down and choosing what pieces I want to include.

Red was the color of today, I completed the 4th chakra painting (I am still not sure if I will use the turquoise painting, "Vishuddha", because I don't want the owl to be a distraction and may do another version for the series).

The root chakra known as Muladhara, symbolizes our ability to ground ourselves to the physical world.

"Muladhara", root chakra, 22" x 30" watercolor

other chakra paintings to date -

Swadhisthana, sacral chakra

Vishuddha, throat chakra

Sahasrara, crown chakra


  1. I think they are all gorgeous but must confess that the turquoise is probably my favorite. The one right above it runs a darned close second though. I think they are beautiful, Robin.

  2. Sherry, I am doing these particular paintings as a kind of therapy for myself, it will be a bonus if others find the beauty in the work. It's interesting for me to hear the painting you feel the most connected to is the one I find least similar to the rest of the series, hmmmm.

  3. Coming out so well.. very useful for chakra meditation.. I am sure you will feel the total therapeutic value after you complete all the 7.

  4. Working on this series and focusing on meditations could not have come at a better time for me, padmaja. When I have the time to paint it makes the meditation more valuable because the chaos in other aspects of my life.

  5. Lovely series Robin. I like looking into all the different layers to see what I find.

  6. thanks, Deborah. It's been a stress release, which is why I think this series may be mostly therapeutic!
