I finally shared with you yesterday the first painting of this new series, Abigail. However, I did not get into details about the series on itself, why I am committed to it and why it is so dear to my being.
My Nixies are all a little (or a lot) part of me. We share common traits. But I wanted to go further, now that they are back in my heart (remember, I announced a few months ago I was going away from them).
I read quite a lot about archetypes, I wanted to be a psychanalyst (yup) and am still passionate about the human being and it mind… I have been doing Soul Searching, Soul Work for over a decade now, and know that I am just touching it from the tip of my fingers. Still a lot to discover, to dig up. But you know, the more you want to know who you truly are, the stronger Fear is.
Earlier this year, I painted two customed Nixies for my Golden Customer, they were two of her persona and I freaked love seeing them coming to life. It was scary but thrilling. It inspired me to let my own come to life on canvas. But I think I was not ready until now.
What is «Pieces Of Me» really about ?
Each of the Nixies in this series will be a part of me, a real one. Like the kid I wanted to be when I was 7 years old, the Shaman I was, the young Priestess in Avalon… and every other persona that create the real Me. I know it may sound totally crazy, oh yes, and this is why I pushed doing this for so long, but you know I’m not (cookoo it is).
I already know some of the next ones I want to create, but you know how I roll: it never happens as I intend it to in the first place. Unexpected is always on my shoulder.
I want to finally «see» them, other than in my mind and in my heart. I want to bring them to life, so to speak. Their stories matter, maybe you will connect with them on some level.
I will begin each painting sessions with extra Reiki. And I will charge them once done as well.
Letting them in. Letting my Visions come to reality. Knowing it is what I need to do right now.
Can’t wait to keep going 🙂
I’m so excited that you’re going to explore this further. I can’t wait to see the nixies you create. I am really moved by your art and I think it’s just wonderful that you’re doing this. Wendy

Oh why didn’t I see your comment before now ? so sorry Wendy. Heading to your blogpost right now, thank you so much. Your kind words are perfectly timed (this may be why I see them only today).
[…] who I am, without compromising it to fit in ? I think this is why I was pulled to star my «Pieces of Me» series of painting, to let all these personas come to life on paintings. There are me, (or were, […]
