A painting for Agnus

A painting for Agnus
This was a blog I wrote for eyecollector.com it tells a story of art and healing

This canvas was gifted to me by a friend who recently lost his partner Agnus. This was her canvas, which she had started painting it and was unable to finish it. I recieved it and decided to honor her journey with the Green Tara, a Goddess of liberating women. It has been a challenging piece emotionally. I can feel her energy on the canvas, and I swear a couple nights ago her spirit was present as I was painting. It is a healing spirit painting and a story about Agnus’s rebirth.
Agnus’s poem (which was written on the canvas):
If you are not afraid of dying then there is nothing you can’t achieve.
If you realize all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold onto.

      1. Hm interesting! I generally paint with acrylic also.. I’d love to try oil painting sometime simply because acrylic tends to dry too fast for my painting speed… I love blending colors. Mahaloness to you too! I’m guessing that means sort of like a “Pura Vida” ??!

      2. Pure life, yes similar indeed, you know Golden Acrylics make paint that has a slower drying time, extended fluids, and also I tend to use a glazing approach (using golden glazing medium) which allows for slightly slower drying times, although it is not quite blending the layering using this technique can produce similar results, I also recommend a spray bottle with water, I do like oil except for the messiness factor;)
