Day Seven : #30x30DirectWatercolor2019 : Headlands Heartlands

June 7, 2019

I have this idea that paintings are Psychic Teleporters.

Great paintings can send you a mental journey. Drawing you in and transporting you somewhere. It’s even more interesting when that place doesn’t really exist. You’re picked up and transported somewhere – even if it’s just into a mood the artist has set down.

I think this is a universal ability. To anyone born with sight. But it might be something you can get better at over time? Being a skilled viewer of paintings.

Being able to look at a painting and getting drawn in – even if that painting isn’t necessarily realistic. At first, we need completely realized paintings to be transported. But the more we look at art, the more we’re able to go into an imaginary place.

A while back we finally got around to hanging some paintings in our dining room. Now, every morning across the table, there are these portals to other places. I can spend a few minutes diving into each one.

Want to practice your high level teleporting? Here are some totally abstract places :)

    Psychic transporter? Absolutely. Every one of the paintings I own or paintings I have done take me away, to a place a time or a feeling. Yours certainly do this for me. Personally, I think paintings have healing powers. Don’t tell anyone. ;-)
