The first thing to do in the New Year messing up colors again like last year initiated by @kritzelich. Purpose is to make predictions about 2021 from each others paintings. Here are mine – feel free to predict.



The morning after                        



The predictions I got from others:

@nightshadeceres: Wolf mask in the middle dark picture
@rabensturmig With the two dark ones, I think of eating, maybe red cabbage or cake (I haven’t eaten anything) The orange reminds me of a ray – a trip to a sunny sea maybe?
@kritzelich I stay with animals: a cow elephant and a cobra: strength, endurance, a good memory and cunning. Your 2021 will be wild! Below I see a bulldog with huge ears, maybe a bat too. I think it means attention. Above it I see a buffalo with wide horn plates: strength + herd instinct. And the whole thing is the head of a brown bear: serenity
@Naketh So I see Black Panther or Batman here, but what does that mean for you now hmmm …. I think you will stand up for others next year
@MoorFrau Dark. The past year as a picture.
@BillyRueBean I see a rose, a panther head and a brain in the three dark ones. And a ray for the lighter one.

The symbolism of the animals named above:

Ray: you have big dreams and feel called to an important life purpose.
Elephant: You already have all the tools you need to accomplish what you desire. Just go for it. Your instincts will lead you where you need to go.
Black Panther : The panther symbolizes courage, valor and power.
Cobra: wisdom, changes, protectiveness, determination, confidence, transformation, speed, defensiveness, and gracefulness.
Bulldog: Self confidence is key for you today. Don’t back down – be loyal to your own ideals.
Buffalo: Abundance and liberation, walk a sacred path, honoring every aspect of life. You will achieve nothing without the aid of the Spiritual Realms. Therefore, you must be humble enough to ask for assistance and then be grateful for those gifts.
Wolf: Listen to your inner thoughts and trust your insights.

Turning Point

As I wrote here I have to work with the second painting you see there. I did the past days. Yesterday I was busy with another drawing challenge – a winter lake. Not sure how but it had to have a black frame. Found one and pasted it on the water color paper. White glue, pastel chalk, water colors – all in the mix. Finishing touch with icing sugar. Very pleased with the outcome. Something about the painting touched me. Had the feeling it had something to do with the white spot in the black painting. Maybe, slowly but steady, I am going inside and start to see. Not absolutely sure, I asked my coach and she confirmed.

Hamster & Reindeer

Not every drawing challenge on Twitter work out fine because my heart has to be with it. This time a reindeer and a hamster really had me going and worked out nicely.

Reindeer shows how to call upon both male and female qualities that you possess. Reindeer will aid in spiritual transition, communication and social abilities. It is about movement, finding inner peace and your place as you journey through life.

all about reindeer

Suites my actual process.

Now the hamster. Never thought of drawing a hamster. Hamsters are cuddly and a lot of children have one. A lame totem ? To the contrary.

Hamster’s symbolism: intense, fiery, artistic nature that just never gets taken seriously. You have paintings in you, and screenplays, and music, and soliloquies! Throw caution to the floor and get going. Leave the hamster wheel.

I know I’m creative not only in the arts, leaving the hamster wheel – that’s the last step. Do I need to say more?

End and backwards

The following painting I did November, 8. I was not sure if it was a personal process painting. Liked it a lot and had it printed. Framed it and set it infront of the wall with my animal drawings. My thought was – root chakra.

During the night of November 23, I painted another black one for an art challenge. The night and November, 24, I had a mild form of hyperventilation. Something was going on.

The reactions I got when posting the painting this morning were a real inspiration and the remarks from https://www.finenwerk.com/ especially helpful and true. Had a coaching session this afternoon and the painting is, indeed, another process painting I have to work with for a while. I have it printed.

The first painting, strangely enough, is the end of the process. The second painting is blocking it. They have to stand side by side when working with them. Old fear, from ages and this life which got suppressed in this life by my parents, implemented a firm pattern of reaction – fear wasn’t there, acting tough.

Another drawing challenge got my attention – the hyena. Not the animal to say its adorable but I wanted to try. Looking up the symbolism afterwards, made clear why I draw one and why it came out looking sweet. The hyena is consistent my inner process.

The Spotted Hyena symbolism, like the Prairie Dog, is a reminder that you must participate in your community. Withdrawal is not an option. Thus you must find ways to get involved and participate in your surroundings healthily and progressively. There is strength in numbers.

Occasionally, the Spotted Hyena symbolism asks you to embrace the feminist energy that is now required by this planet to find balance. For far too long, you have given up a part of yourself to the opposing forces that surround you. Moreover, leadership requires a balance in all areas. Therefore, the Hyena meaning implies that you must take on both the male and the female energies to bring about compromise. If you are male, this means that you will have to get in touch with your feminine side.

Received two thank-you-presents that were waiting until I do something with them. Got a lot of horse hair and when unpack it, the hair fell into heart shape.

The second present were two ‘Hühnergötter’ or as they are called in different tongues: hag stones, Snake’s eggs, Glain neidr, Adderstanes or Gloine nan Druidh. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adder_stone

Combined the two in the larger ‘Hühnergott’ and added a tool I made some time ago. Today I initiated the tool.

My world


Today via LinkedIn I came across a drawing challenge on https://esthervanderham.nl/teken-jouw-wereld/

Great idea to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon with it. Started on A3 and drew with both hands and eyes closed as I like to do. By doing so, one let come out what is inside and not disrupted by thoughts. Its the version of the inner child.


Afterwards I took a canvas and again with both hands choosing colors and the place to be, painting with my hands and of course eyes closed. Nothing had to be done to the middle spot.

The past days the bear crossed my path. In words and messages from others and in myself. Was given a gif on Twitter

that reminded me again of a picture I once got from an old dear friend.

Plus it reminded me of a bear tool I made a long time ago. Looked that up and started upgrading it. Implemented the bear tooth I have. Here is bear, the healer of emotions and foundation, the grounding force, confidence and courage.

Furthermore I had to remove some plants and while doing so, a tiny little branch from the stephanotis or Hawaiian wedding flower fell down and I kept it because of its shape. Two weeks ago I bought a Brucit gemstone as I already told in a previous blog. Today the tiny branch and the Brucit had to join forces.

stephanotis derived from the Greek word stephanos’ , meaning ‘crown’. Stephanotis signifies ‘marital bliss’

Both tools are not yet initiated.
