Maristha Schellink

It's a pleasure for me to invite here Maristha Schellink, 39 years old artist and healer from South Africa. Maristha stated on her websites about her work that she paints who and what she is, so as she changed, her paintings changed too. Maristha Schellink: Moon Fairy No.2, 45x35 cm She is interested in Reiki, alternative healing methods, runes, tai chi... Her colourful paintings often created on a triangular surface represents her own spiritual aspirations and journey. These are full of energy and subtile beauty. Most of all I like her figurative drawings of the "Isa series" where I see the strongest (or maybe most palpable) message. I was glad when I found some similar shapes and topics in her art as Lukas Karbus or I have created. Please take a while and have a look at maristha.blogspot.com. There is a lot of light. Welcome, Maristha!

An open offer for all spiritual artists - free presentation and about video Cosmos by Pavel Magda Prazak

Greetings!
Well, as I see, Google Search resulted this website as No.1 for "spiritual paintings" phrase though I didn't add any new content so I'd like to invite all of you for participation in this project. The Radikala lesson taught me that successful web community requires a lot of pro-active effort. And I don't want to work on any web project now when I bought the garden as well as so many paintings are waiting to be finished. I offer this place for every spiritual artist - you and your works can be the new content here on SpiritualPaintings.org! Just write me an email or response to this post. Send me your pictures or address of your online portfolio and I will probably publish a post about you (if it will be proper content). Imagine how some art enthusiast types "spiritual paintings" in Google and in few clicks he will see your works. Yes, it's possible that we will loose the first position in Google. This fall happens usually and maybe you have heard about it. But does it matter? :) I want to find some new friends. For an inspiration I add below three parts of great video by my friend Pavel Magda. It's a pitty that he hasn't won the Start Point Prize for that and he was just a bit out of winning! By the way it's me who whistles the Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's melody and imitates frog's quackeling with a sling hanged on his neck (in the second part). ;)




See more his videos on YouTube.
